Time to break out your best costume, grab your friends and head to the YMCA for some Halloween festivities! Our night will include silly games, crazy prizes, spooky refreshments, lots of dancing, and a costume contest. (Please stay in a spirit of FUN, not fright – some folks scare easily.) Best party in town…don’t miss this thrilling night!!! 

November 8 – Gratitude Potluck Dinner

We have so many reasons to give thanks! Let’s get together and show our appreciation for each other by sharing a meal and counting our blessings in a special way. Each person will be responsible for bringing a favorite dish to share in true potluck style. Friends and family are welcome! :)

December 13 – MASH Gift Exchange & End-of-Year Wrap Up

Let’s celebrate our year together with a Goofy Gift Exchange! Everyone bring a WRAPPED new or gently- used item to add to the gift pile. Focus on funny, cute, or ridiculous (keep value between $1-10 max)! The point is to make the recipient SMILE when they open it!. ? We’ll reminisce about the amazing year we’ve had together and brainstorm our ideas for 2020!!!
