Decade List & Weekly Special Activities
Each week this summer, we will celebrate a different decade through themed events, Tea Room specials, music or decorations. See the full list below.
In times of celebration, it is important to remember those who are less fortunate. Thanks to Cass Kwan and her connection with the St. John’s Food Pantry in Stroudsburg, we will be collecting items throughout the season to donate. A collection box will be available in the Lounge for drop-off anytime. However, if you drop off any of the following items in the Tea Room during our respective decade celebration, you will receive a chance to win a free ice cream cone! Drawings will be held on Thursday nights!
