Clubs & Activities
Join us for fun and games every 3rd Monday starting at 6 p.m. On Game Night, we break out our collection of board games, playing cards, and dominoes and let you and your family have at them. Connect 4, Jenga, checkers, and many more games offer gaming fun for the night. The games are set out for you to browse, and you’re welcome to play whichever one(s) you’d like, either with your friends and family or with other game lovers from the community. Occasionally, we’ll have a themed Game Night. Such nights will be noted on the schedule.
