Fit Oshkosh, Inc. Hosts a Community Movie Night and Chat Back
Attendees will watch the highly-acclaimed 1998 motion picture "American History X." It is a provocative movie that touches on the current-day themes of race, politics, socioeconomics, religion, masculinity, and family dynamics. The movie will be followed by a Chat Back, which is a facilitated conversation about these topics.
Fit Oshkosh’s Executive Director, Tracey Robertson, describes the value of this kind of event: “Movies are a comfortable way for individuals to talk through some of the challenging issues that are being played out on a national level and closer to home here in Winnebago County. We use this movie-model in other trainings and we know that it is a non-threatening way for people from all walks of life to have authentic conversations. Typically people don’t talk beyond the surface with these topics because they do not know how. A Chat Back gives attendees a place to ask critical questions and to learn with one another.”
The movie is Rated R for violence, sex, nudity and strong language.
Tickets go on sale on December 31, 2014 and can be purchased by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 920-216-3107, or at the door.
Fit Oshkosh offers Racial Literacy Workshops throughout Winnebago County to nonprofit organizations, schools, university classes, faith groups, and businesses. For more information, please call 920-216-3107.

Fratello's-Oshkosh is cooking up a special to help local humane society
On Wednesday, Dec. 10 from 4 pm until closing time, for anyone who stops in for a bite to eat and mentions to their waitstaff person that they’re eating for the animal shelter (or OAHS), Fratello’s will donate 15% of their total bill to the shelter. You get a delicious meal and beverage, and Fratello’s makes the donation. All you have to do is mention OAHS.
So whether you’re taking a break from holiday shopping, or you simply want to unwind by having a nice, relaxing dinner after a long day at work, it’s the perfect way to help the pets in our community who don’t have a home or family to be with for the holidays.
It doesn’t get much better, or easier than that! But, mark your calendar now because it’s only on December 10! To learn about other ways you can help the shelter anytime, visit them at www.oahs.org
Fratello’s is located at 1501 Arboretum Dr., Oshkosh. Tel. 920.232.2337, or visit them on the web at www.fratelloswaterfront.com
