‘Silver Bell’s screens at Vail library Saturday

Daily staff report

VAIL — The town of Vail Public Library invites the public to the library Saturday at 3:30 p.m. for a free, apres ski screening of “Silver Bells,” a new film featuring the Salvation Army. The library is pleased to partner with Tsu Wolin-Brown, director of the Vail Valley Salvation Army, to bring this film to the community.

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

The movie centers around an ambitious businessman, played by Bruce Boxleitner, who gets in a scuffle with a referee at his son’s basketball game. As a consequence, 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 his relationship with his son — is changed by something as simple as ringing that silver bell.

This program is free. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 970-479-2187.
