(Updated at 4:10 p.m. Thursday) Minions ran amok with Ward 6 D.C. Councilmember Charles Allen at the Kennedy Recreation Center (1401 7th St. NW) in Shaw last night.
The center screened the film “Despicable Me” outdoors starting at 6:30 p.m. in partnership with the Friends of Kennedy Recreation Center and Allen’s office. Residents brought chairs and blankets to sit on while they watch the film.
Popcorn was provided for free and the Dolci Gelati truck was on site to sell gelato. A portion of those sales went toward funding new programs for children and seniors at the recreation center.
