Thunder: Teen Dinner & Gaming

Thunder continues to meet on Thursdays (May 5, 12, 19, & 26) from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM.  (NOTE: No meeting on March 24.)

Thunder is a weekly dinner and gaming group for teens in 6th through 12th grade. Join Miss Kathleen for Wii games, board games, and dinner. Registration is not required, but Thunder is limited to the first 15 kids who sign in each week.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their generous donations to Thunder. On average it can cost about $30 each week to supply food for 15 teens. We appreciate your support!
