Third Place Commons Game Night

May 16, 2018 - 6:00pm

Lake Forest Park

Join the fun with a group that meets every Wednesday evening to play a variety of board & card games. Most games last less than 90 minutes so we can enjoy a change of pace. Bring a game you like to play or a new one you want us to try out together.

Game Night convenes in the Stadler Room on the first Wednesday of the month, and at tables in the Commons the rest of the month. Come join the fun!
