File this away under wishful thinking.

The Beeville Art Museum presented a free screening of a family-friendly movie under the stars Thursday night.

The featured film: “Frozen,” naturally.

If you missed that chance to chill, then there’s the “Empty Bowls” concert for charity on Sunday afternoon.

The Tuesday Evening Potters and St. Philip’s organist John Blackburn are teaming up for a “cool” organ concert. The event will benefit the Beeville Vineyard and St. Philip’s Berclair Mission starting at 3 p.m. at St. Philip’s.

After the concert, those in attendance may choose a bowl to be filled for a suggested minimum donation. And, instead of soup, the bowl appropriately will be filled with... ice cream.

Serving ice cream to help fight hunger, both in this community and as an international program; now that’s a cool and appealing idea.

Then again, one still can sign up (and line up) for the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” which is going viral and making a giant splash across America, perhaps even beyond our shores.

Please see today’s lead story and photos for a refreshing glimpse at how some local businesses and organizations have creatively accepted this offer to assist the ALS Association. This trending phenomenon is like catching a (frigid) wave.

If not immersed in any of these activities, please check the latest Bee County Chamber of Commerce listing of upcoming events.

Two of those include the Sept. 17 Bee Development Authority unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) program with Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi at the Beeville Country Club; and the Chamber’s own banquet on Sept. 26 at Chase Field’s VT-24 hangar, with featured speaker U.S. Sen. John Cornyn.

Of course, many of us are looking forward to cooler weather, football games and hunting season.

Fall’s almost here. Can’t you just feel it?
