Board game Night

On Summer Break

Join host Jordan Ramsey for weekly game night for all ages (children must be accompanied by adults). Jordan has a variety of games to choose from each week. Participants are encouraged to bring their own games to share with the group. The night will start with a fun group game that everyone can play and then break into smaller groups based on personal interests. No need to register – just come have some traditional fun. Bring your own snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

We ask that you sign up in advance to help with planning. $3 per class.

Our goal is to provide programming that is accessible to all. If cost is a barrier to participation, please contact us.
