Yosemite High School senior Peter Cresci, 18, learned about serving your country from family - His grandfather, Bob Adney, was a Marine, and Peter’s father, Mark Cresci is currently a member of the United States Navy.

For his YHS senior project, Peter came up with ‘Movie Day’ and is inviting all veterans and their families to enjoy a free movie, “The Karate Kid,” popcorn and drinks at the Met Cinema at 9:15 a.m., April 28.

“I came up with this idea because I wanted to give back to all the veterans in the Mountain Area and their families for their service to our country,” Cresci said. “Both my father and grandfather are pretty humble about being in the service, but I have a lot of respect for them and other veterans for what they sacrificed and what their families sacrificed.”

Cresci has circulated a flyer about the event to elementary schools in the area, and has also received some help from members of the American Legion Post 110 to get the word out.

“The American Legion Post also made a donation to help pay for all the free popcorn and drinks we will be providing to everyone that comes to the move,” Cresci said. “The Met is allowing us to use the theater and show the movie at no cost.”

“I am not doing anything fancy, I just want to do something for veterans and their families and I hope a lot of families come to this event that is being held in their honor,” Cresci said.
