Take in a free family movie night courtesy of the Balmoral Bible Chapel. The Lost and Found Family screens on Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. in the church located at Hwy 11 and Rutherford Drive. The movie tells of a wealthy woman inheriting a rundown boarding house occupied by a couple struggling to raise five orphaned and abandoned children. The woman moves in, hoping to sell the house after evicting the family, and instead connects with them. Admission is free, as is the pop, popcorn and child care. More information is available by calling the church at 403-347-5450.
