FROM OUR SUGGESTION BOX:

WE HAVE PUZZLE MANIA!  A member suggested that we put a puzzle out for members to complete.  She had seen this in some hotel lobbies and people would stop, put in a couple of pieces and move on.   We  thought it was a great idea so we set up a table in the lobby.  When you come in to the center stop by the table set up in our lobby and see if you can find some pieces to complete the puzzle.  

WE HAVE BOARD GAMES!  Another suggestion from a member was to put out board games for members to play.  Well, it just so happens we do have Scrabble, Monopoly, Clue, Checkers, etc.  They are available in the "game room".  So, help yourselves and get a game going!  It's a great way to improve your brain and make new friends!
