Are you one of the original "gamers"?

With North Dakota’s long winters, board games and card games are the perfect way to spend the day, but few play these days.  Are you a board game enthusiast that has a hard time convincing your friends to play? If you are, then consider joining us as an instructor for Enrichment this fall. Pinochle, Cribbage, Bunco, Chess – you name it, we’d love to have you as an instructor! To submit your class ideas, contact us at 701-224-5600 and ask for Karen.

We can’t wait to hear from you!
