A Winter Film Festival at Tom & Marilyn's home. An up close view of independent films and film festivals to help beat the winter blues.

A mix of short favorites from previous Winter Festivals and new ones we have obtained. Perhaps an excellent feature film.

F13 Game Afternoon for the Young at Heart and the Young

Come have fun playing board games for both the younger kids and the older kids/adults. We will have two tables with several game options. Snacks will be provided, with vegetarian and gluten free options available. The way this works is that there will be 8 spots open for bidding. 1 slot = 1 adult + 1 kid. If you have two kids that want to come then you would need to buy 2 slots (i.e. first kid is free). All kids must be accompanied by an adult. You do not need to have a kid to attend; you just have to enjoy playing board games with them.
