Next Teen Advisory Group:

We will be hosting another TAG meeting on Sunday, November 28, from 2:30-4:00 pm.

This time we'll have *pizza*, a few activities, discuss our favourite books, and we'll spend some time planning a teen Dungeons and Dragons event and discuss other possible events for the new year (all are welcome to come plan with us—no D&D experience necessary!)

Teens are welcome to register with us via email or drop in to any TAG dates. Let us know if you're planning on coming and have a food sensitivity/restriction.
