We get together to play all kinds of games on Sundays at the spiral bench on Lamphere just south of Chalfonte.
It's a completely drop-in Sunday funday with games like Scrabble, Pictionary, Uno, Chess, Jenga, Taboo, and cards. Don't see your favorite game listed? We may have acquired it or you can bring it with you and teach folks how to play.
If you're feeling like a little more action, we've got some lawn games and some kids are always up for freeze tag or something else wiggly.
Since it's outdoor fun, we cancel when the weather doesn't cooperate. (Maybe in the winter we'll build snow creatures? Only time will tell.)
Come join the fun and meet some new neighbors!
We meet on the first Thursday of every month to check in with our neighbors, share a meal, and race through what happened last month and what's on the docket for next month. The meetings are open to all and take place at St. Christine's Soup Kitchen at the corner of Dacosta and Fenkell. Chatting and chewing starts at 6:30, the official meeting starts at 7, and we strive to end the business by 8:30.
We welcome all interested parties and encourage you come whether or not you've had a chance to whip up something tasty in your kitchen. Sliced watermelon or a carry out pizza are great offerings, and if you don't have time to pick up or whip up something, we still want to meet you!
Hope to see you soon.
