The first Dive-In Movie in Hood River happens Saturday at the Hood River Aquatic Center.
Bring your inner tube (or rent one there) and settle into the water for “Finding Nemo,” the classic Disney/Pixar animated adventure. Donations will be accepted at the door.
Dive-in Movie is a fundraiser for the Hood River Parks and Recreation District, in association with local sponsors.

Kids and adults will be able to swim in the pool during the movie. Inner tubes are available for a $2 rental fee.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
