Published on: September 27, 2013Spending time with family while meeting new friends is the purpose of Family Game Night at Lone Star College-Atascocita Center.
This fall, the center invites community members to come out and participate in a variety of board games. The event will take place on Oct. 11, Nov. 15 and Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. in the library.
“Family Game Night provides an opportunity for families and individuals to interact with others and enjoy various board games all for free,” said David Baty, dean of LSC-Atascocita Center. “We hope the participants will spend time at the center, relax with friends and family, and maybe even learn how to play a new board game.”
Family Game Night games are Jenga, Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, Apples to Apples, PO*KE*NO, UNO, and Scrabble. Participants are encouraged to bring other board games. Light snacks will be served.
“This event will build relationships between the center and the local community and provide an avenue for people to interact,” Baty said. “This also gives people a chance to see the center, if they have never been here.”
LSC-Atascocita Center opened in 2011 as a satellite campus of LSC-Kingwood. The center provides the community with local access to services, college courses and programs, workforce training and leisure learning. It also serves as the home to Humble ISD’s Quest Early College High School and University of Houston-Downtown’s Bachelors in Business Administration completion degree. LSC-Atascocita Center is located at 15903 West Lake Houston Parkway.
