The public is invited to the Avon Library on Tuesday at 6 p.m. for a free film screening of “Silver Bells,” a new film featuring the Salvation Army. The library is pleased to partner with Tsu Wolin-Brown, the director of the Vail Valley Salvation Army, to bring the film to the community.

“We are excited to kick of the bell ringing season with this fun family film,” said Wolin-Brown. “What a great way to get in the spirit of the holidays!”

When an ambitious businessman (Bruce Boxleitner) gets in a scuffle with a ref at his son’s basketball game, he is suspended from his job and sentenced to community service — manning a red kettle and ringing bells for the Salvation Army for the rest of the Christmas season. At first he finds this humiliating, and in his self-pity determines to be the world’s worst bell ringer, but as he encounters the people behind the kettle, his life — and especially his relationship with his son — is changed by something as simple as ringing a bell.
