April 2019 Newsletter

Happy Spring!  As most of you are aware, LNN wouldn’t operate and have all its fun activities if it wasn’t for its member board.  There are about 15 of us – you can see who we are on the Board page on the website.  The board serves a term from June-June, so it’s that time of year where we start looking for new board members for next year.  Consider serving on the board! It’s a great group of people – in addition to doing a specific job (examples are party planning, publicity, lunch bunch coordinator, website admin) you are asked to attend our monthly board meetings.  If you’re at all interested in finding out more, email us at  We’d love to hear from you and answer any questions.

About the Games: Bunco is an entertaining, simple dice game, with no experience requiredIt’s played in multiple rounds with players alternating turns rolling the dice to match the target number. Whoever wins the most rounds is the overall winner. And because players rotate tables, it is a great way to meet and chat with different people. Left-Right-Center is an even simpler game, faster moving than Bunco, and is played at the end of the evening. Did we mention there’s no experience required?
