Board game Night
Wednesdays, 6-9pm | Cafe
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’ll have the coffee on! Come enjoy fellow community members and enjoy a free cup of coffee in the Café. We invite all ages to join in the conversation.

The majority of our programs (unless otherwise noted) require a $3 donation per participant. This donation helps to offset the heating and electrical costs required to operate the building. Our goal is to provide programming that is accessible to all. If cost is a barrier to participation, please contact us.
