White Elephant Gift Exchange & Holiday Dinner

Celebrate the holidays at our white elephant gift exchange and dinner! Each participant must bring one wrapped gift that costs about $10 and a covered dish to share for dinner. The gift can be traditional or a “gag gift.” We will all select a number, which determines our gift selecting order. At each person’s turn, they can choose to open a new present or "steal" another person's unwrapped gift. When a person's gift is stolen, that person chooses another wrapped gift to open. The game is over when the last person has taken their turn. Fun, laughter and opposition are sure to ensue! FREE to the public. Please register by Friday, December 7th by 5 p.m. $10 wrapped gift and covered dish required.

The Not-So-Newlywed Game

Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day! Or is it? Join us for the first ever Not-So-Newlywed Game!

The couples earn points for each correct response with the highest-scoring couple winning a prize - usually a trip for a "second honeymoon."

The winning team will win a prize!                                                                                                  $5 to cover the cost of dinner.
