Teen Game Night

Blokus, Pictionary, Scattegories, Stratego, Connect 4, and Monopoly were all part of the entertainment last night at MGPL's Teen Game Night! We ran out of time on a speed round of Monopoly that we agreed we should start with next time. It was great to see everyone and have lots of laughs. Thanks to Shawn and Jay for helping to clean up!

The next Teen Game Night is Thursday, August 31, 7 - 8:30 pm. It will be fun to hear about everyone's first days back at school. Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation and see you soon at MGPL!
