Family Date Night @ Hubley Hall

Our first Family Date Night (on October 13) was a great success! Nine families came together for a great meal, then gathered in individual family units for a guided activity designed to build skills of self-expression, listening and loving one another.

Thank you Carol Robbins, Rosemary Welch, Donna and Peter Larkin and Adam and Alison Hubley for preparing the food, setting up and cleaning up afterwards!

All expressions of family are welcome to come to Family Date Night. It is a great way to spend meaningful time together

One Saturday night a month.
