Mark your calendars and plan on attending the first ever FUMC Games Night on April 15 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the Lakeview Social Hall. Cost is $10 per person with a $20 family limit, and participants are asked to also bring a wrapped “White Elephant” prize. Snacks are included as part of the registration fee.
Games of Cribbage, Scrabble, and Yahtzee will be offered with a 30-minute time limit per session of games. Participants will then change into different playing groups for the next 30-minute session. Longer sessions of up to an hour will be possible for some games. Winners will have their choice of “White Elephant” prizes, and drawings will also be held for door prizes.
Families of all sizes are welcome, and child care will be provided for children too young for the games. This first ever event is sponsored by the Capital Campaign Steering Committee with the goal of fun and fellowship. All proceeds from Games Night will go to the Capital Campaign.
