Movie: A Friend Indeed: the Bill Sackter Story
Friday, June 15, 2018
Join us for the second movie in our spring/summer film series, cosponsored by the Center for Independence of Individuals with Disabilities. Abandoned in a mental institution at age 7, Bill Sackter would never see his family again. Released 44 years later, a chance meeting with a young college student, Barry Morrow, changed his life forever. Bill became the harmonica-playing proprietor of “Wild Bill’s Coffee Shop” and his upbeat personality soon got him noticed. Even though he couldn’t read or write, he deeply embraced every moment and every relationship. All he needed was a second chance. Movie is one hour and thirty minutes, and will be followed by a short discussion.
