I remember a recent experience:
Picked up some penne pasta with pancetta and polenta from Cafe Cimmento. A pal purchased some pernil pork and potatoes from another downtown place. Another pounced on Tomasino's pepperoni pizza and we met on the pitch.
Open air, hundreds of people stretching out under the stars, and popcorn and refreshments by Touch the Moon Candy Saloon - all mix together to form the downtown tradition of watching movies Mondays at dusk downtown.

This whole movie series started in recent years because of three individuals. These three wanted to have movies downtown available to the public like they experiences in other places they've lived. They shared the idea, gained allies, built the huge screen frame by hand, and selected the films.
Now this event is a team effort with many more people and institutions and sponsors making this series an even larger success than before.
But remember, it started with three people.
Individuals can make an impact in Youngstown. no question.
