Fun with Shrinky Dinks

Stop in anytime between 6 and 8 and make some shrinky dinks! Conceived by two housewives in the early 1970's, shrinky dinks were all the rage. Come witness the magic! Create your own masterpiece or trace something. The sky's the limit. 


Improv club forming! Join Tom as he teaches us the basics of Improv and gives us a foundation for starting our own club. We plan on meeting the 3rd Monday of each month. No experience necessary! 

Day After Thanksgiving Walk

Walk off your Thanksgiving meal and spend the morning outdoors at one of Barrington's hidden gems, the Johannis Wildlife Preserve, 32 acres of woodlands, open fields, and saltwater marshes on the Palmer River.

Johannis is maintained and protected by the Barrington Land Conservation Trust and normally closed to the public. This is a wonderful opportunity to view this special property and enjoy time with family and friends.

This trail can be wet, so protective shoes are recommended.

Scrooged - with Cookies and Hot Cocoa

Decorate cookies and drink hot cocoa while watching this "modern classic." Scrooged 
PG-13 (1988) 1 hr 41 mins

"In this modern take on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," Frank Cross (Bill Murray) is a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature has driven away the love of his life, Claire Phillips (Karen Allen). But after firing a staff member, Eliot Loudermilk (Bobcat Goldthwait), on Christmas Eve, Frank is visited by a series of ghosts who give him a chance to re-evaluate his actions and right the wrongs of his past." (IMDB)
