New program ideas

We are always looking for new programs to sponsor.

We had a game night going for a couple of weeks, and a movie night idea, that remained just an idea. Maybe we could create a book club, a dinng adventure night (show a film on a country or state, and sample its cuisine). I know there are more ideas out there. Just give me a call, and I’ll see what we can get started on. Call me at 264-4152.
