The Milling Center plans to offer a free family game day this month.

The center will host an open-house style event that will give locals the opportunity to preview what the center is all about.

Organizer Ellie Getchius said that the open houses have been successful in getting people in the door at the Milling Center.

“That’s our goal with the open house, is getting people in the door and letting them see the space and getting them involved,” Mrs. Getchius said. “It almost worked too well with the Halloween open house as we had more people than expected.”

She said the new challenge is hosting the events while still adhering to the governor’s new limitations on social gatherings. She said that the event will have shorter hours and that they are will try to limit the flow of people coming in and out of the building.

“We are trying to figure out how to keep the event controlled now that Idaho is back in stage 2,” Mrs. Getchius said.

The event will offer not only an opportunity for locals to check out the facility but also they will have an opportunity to join in on winning door prizes, playing games, and entering some raffles.

Family Game Day will be Saturday, November 21, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
