In response to the great times we’ve had at this event in the past, we’re hosting Game Night again for Youth Chorale members. It’s an evening of fun for kids (with the help of volunteers), as they play cards or board games, snack and socialize. The event will be from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on Friday, October 23rd on the second floor of the NEW Center Building, 1100 N. Main in Ann Arbor. Parking and pick-up are easy, so it’s a convenient spot for this drop-off event.
Game Night is free, but we ask that you list your child on the sign-up sheet sent emailed by Lori Harris on October 11th newsletter. We also ask that each child bring a salty or sweet snack to share. AAYC will provide drinks, plates, napkins, etc.
This is a great chance to hang out with Youth Chorale kids and get to know them better. We hope to see lots of AAYC members at Game Night!
