Leadership, service and giving back to the community are core values shared by the Active 20-30 Club of Redding and its president, Todd Jones.

“They’re an effective group of people. We have similar concerns and we’re just trying to do what we can to make the community better,” Jones says.

The Active 20-30 Club has been around for almost 100 years and has clubs all over the world. Members are between the ages of 21-39 and they must attend two business meetings, go to one social, pay dues and help with one of the club’s events. However, a person doesn’t have to be a member to volunteer at an event.

“We definitely have people that help with a lot of our events before they actually become a member,” says Jones. “We’re not going to force anyone to become a member, but we love the help.”

The Active 20-30 Club of Redding holds two meetings a month: A business meeting on the first Wednesday and a social meeting on the third Wednesday of every month. The club coordinates fundraisers and service projects, with money raised at fundraisers going toward its service projects.

The club’s biggest service project is taking kids back-to-school shopping, Jones says. It’s a nationwide Active 20-30 Club tradition.

“We took 40 kids last year, which is the most we’ve ever done,” says Jones. “They get $100 each at Old Navy, which goes a really long way. Every kid gets a brand new pair of shoes and a backpack full of school supplies.”

The club also organizes an Easter egg hunt and the Big Race at Big League Dreams, where families “make box cars and run around in circles,” Jones says.

“Our mission is to serve the children in the area, so that’s where all of our money and our resources go, but we have things like the Sundial Film Festival, which isn’t focused on children, but all the money we raise will help children in the area,” Jones says.

The Sundial Film Festival will be March 5 at the Cascade Theatre. Out of the 30 films that were submitted, seven were chosen for the Silver Screen show at 1 pm and 12 were chosen for the Premier Screen show at 7 pm. The afternoon show is more family-friendly, while the evening show is for more of a mature audience. Every film is rated PG-13 or less.

The 19 selected films were sent to the L.A. Film Studies Center, where an independent group of judges scored them. Awards will be granted to one film in each of the following categories: Best of Festival, Best Narrative, Best Documentary, Best Animation, Best “One Minute Movie,” Best Local School Annual Production, People’s Choice Award and Best Invited Film.

Along with films, more than 100 photos were submitted for the Gallery Night that took place Feb. 13 at Old City Hall. The best of these photos will be hung upstairs in the Cascade Theatre on the night of the festival. Awards will be given to the Best of Show and the People’s Choice.

The purpose of the Sundial Film Festival is to highlight the local talent of the filmmakers and photographers in the Redding area.
