This summer the Pascal Senior Activity Center is offering “Grandparent Specials,” events for center members and their school-age grandchildren at the center, 125 Dorsey Road, Glen Burnie. The schedule follows:

• July 8, 12:15 p.m., DVD Movie: Secretariat— Based on the novel Secretariat, the film covers the real-life story of a housewife with little knowledge of horse-racing who fosters Secretariat, one of the greatest race horses of all time. The story of the 1973 Triple Crown winner comes to the screen in this inspirational underdog drama.

• July 14, 12:30 p.m., Reptile Wrap-Up— A Scales and Tales Outreach Program presented by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. These scaly creatures will captivate you as we share myths, histories and benefits of these often misunderstood animals.

• July 21, 12:30 p.m., Bill Sharkey Variety Hour—Center members are invited to bring their grandchildren to participate in a free interactive variety show that incorporates music, humor, magic, comedy and silly challenges that will entertain young and old alike.

• July 26, 12:30 p.m., Zoomobile Presentation: Endangered Species—Endangered species are being pushed toward extinction by a variety of threats ranging from pollution to over-exploitation. You can meet some endangered animals up close and learn what you can do to help them survive.

• July 29, 12:30 p.m., American Folk Harp Concert—Join us on the patio for a program of traditional songs, spirituals, the music of Stephen Foster, and some patriotic favorites.

• Aug. 12, 12:15 p.m., DVD Movie:  Ramona and Beezus—Adapted from Beverly Cleary’s popular book series, this movie stars Joey King as Ramona Quimby, a grade-schooler with a big imagination. When her upbeat dad loses his job, the family (including Ramona’s teenage sister Beezus) must make major adjustments.

• Aug. 18, 12:30 p.m.,  Magic of Kohl— Dick Kohlhafer will amaze, astound, and amuse Center members and their grandchildren with a performance of magic and slight-of-hand.
