Families from East Lake Elementary School in Massapequa Park gathered Sept. 20 for its annual Back to School Outdoor Movie Night. Students and their families from the elementary school set up chairs and blankets to watch the 1971 classic “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” The event was sponsored by the East Lake PTA, with PTA 1st and 2nd Vice Presidents, Lauren Gonzalez and Roseann Blejec co-chairing the event. The evening was complete with popcorn and drinks, as well as treat bags for the kids. Additionally, five lucky children received candy bars that had a golden ticket, mimicking the film. Each of the five golden tickets entitled the holder to a special prize basket.
