An award-winning independent film, “The Vetters: All We Needed,” will premiere in Delaware on Thursday, Oct. 8, at 5:30 p.m. at the Strand Theatre.

It will be presented by the Rotary Club of Delaware as a benefit for the Strand. Key sponsors include Meijer and Manos, Martin and Pergram, LPA.

Sports fans as well as those who enjoy stories about overcoming adversity will find this film fascinating, organizers say.

In the film, the lives of a close-knit family of six siblings of Mexican/Native American decent from Chardon, Ohio, intimately reflect on the sacrifices and steadiness of their humble and devoted father, and how they overcame poverty and the heartbreaking loss of their mother to become national champions, world record holders and Olympic contenders as runners in the 1970s and 1980s.

Tickets are $30 each and include food and beverage, movie admission, a talk-back session with the film producers and a live auction.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.localevelevents.com/events/details/1352 or at the door if they are still available.

For more information, contact Rotarian Mike Miller, at 740-203-2420 or mike@mysourcepoint.org.
