Supreme Court Discussion Group

The focus of the Supreme Court discussion group is to examine current Supreme Court cases (and the  personal dynamics of the Supreme Court as an institution) within the context of the intersection of law, government and American history. Additionally, we will at times discuss current events that have little to do with law simply because they are of interest to all of us. The class is not intended to be a political debate forum. The purpose of discussion is to better understand the historical and political context of current Supreme Court cases and other relevant contemporary issues.

Tuesdays • 10:30 a.m.–12 p.m. • Classroom

Mah Jongg Community Play

American Mah Jongg is a fun and challenging tile game.  Newcomers are welcome, though you will need a bit of experience in playing the game for familiarity with the game card and putting hands together for a Mah Jongg.  The game improves social skills, memory, and even math skills! 

Tuesdays and Fridays • 12:30–4 p.m. • Gameroom

Wednesday Art Group (formerly Palette Pals)

In 1992, a group of ladies met every Monday morning to paint. The group's meeting locations have included members homes, the Estes Park Baptist Church and the old Senior Center.  In 2018, the group moved to the new Community Center.  Current members Beverly Wilczek, Esther Greenberg, Gloria Peterson, Susan Robertson, Gail Henrichs and Linda Villanueva invite you to join them!  Please bring your own supplies (watercolors, sketch pads, coloring books, etc.) and your creativity!

Chess

We are an inclusive group of adults who enjoy the game of chess.  There are no requirements other than interest in the game.  We provide boards and pieces, and sometimes share information regarding games, openings, or other chess related matters.  Any adult is welcome to come and play or just observe.  We all learn from each other about the game.

Cars & Coffee

The Estes Park Car Club is organizing a very informal get together of car people. It's not a show (no entry fees or judging), but if you have an interesting car, it doesn't have to be old, or fancy, or even complete (domestic or foreign), please bring it so the we can all take a look! We will have a coffee pot going; bring a chair to sit and swap stories!
