Euchre night is changing to game night!!
We are going in a different direction for the Wednesday night card game at the Elks. Once everyone gets there, the people there will decide what they want to play. It could be other card games, it could be euchre, it could be board games. Whatever the group decides. If there are enough people there, there could be multiple games played. So I hope to see you all out at the Elks tonight and every Wednesday for some fun and games!
