Are you craving a little laughter, levity, camaraderie, and lightheartedness? Then mix up your day and join us for “27FM,” an easy, fun, and social “break from the norm.” Together we will step outside of our comfort zone to engage our senses, tickle our funny bones, create new things, learn about each other, and enjoy a little hard-earned time in the playful and cheery zone.

No preparation necessary. Just join and have fun.
