Games Day at the Co-op

Hello Everyone,

The Education Committee will be hosting a Games Day at the co-op office beginning at 1pm on Sunday, February 25th.

We will have Pictionary and Pandemic on hand. My kids will bring some card games as well.

If you like you can bring a snack to share.

We should wrap up around 3pm.

We hope you join in.

If you would like to RSVP to me at this address to give us an idea of how many members are coming that would be great but if you decide at the last minute to join us you are more than welcome.
