It’s almost here! The Waterford Coalition for Youth and the Waterford Area Chamber of Commerce present the 7th Annual Movies under the Moonlight Friday, June 19 on the Pierce Middle School Football Field. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. and the movie begins at dusk.

Chair massages for parents and additional entrance lines are planned for your convenience.
