Spanish language game night of apples to apples (Manzanas con manzanas) and a appetizer potluck. Our goal is to practice spanish with each other while we are having fun. 

All levels of spanish are welcome, you don't have to be fluent to participate in this event but some familiarity with the language is beneficial. The apples to apples game includes nouns and adjectives that are basic to intermediate. 

We do ask that you come with a positive attitude; your energy is contagious and we like to keep our events drama free and full of positive energy. 

Carrie Jansen will be hosting the event helping with language questions that may arise. 

This event is made possible by a grant from the North Shore Health Care Foundation. | | 218-387-3411 |

If you are interested in the documents that are explaining and supporting the Lutsen Affordable Housing Project, that will be partly funded by the $1,575,000 tax abatement bond, that is ultimately secured by we the taxpayers, you can find them by clicking here...Cook County Board Packet 2-28-17 and then clicking on "meeting materials" once rerouted to the board packet web site.

The purpose for this post is to inform all of us about the meeting and how to find the information about the project, not to support or oppose the topic.
