Something Old…Something New

Something Old...Something New

Club members playing dominoes in the Learning Center

Club members in La Conner have sparked interest in a new game, dominoes!  The game of dominoes is actually very old and was thought to have originated in China in the 12th century to keep guards awake while on duty.  Many of the LC youth were unfamiliar with the game though, and took interest when Education Coordinator Ellen Vaughan held a dominoes teaching session in the Learning Center.  Many variations of the game exist but even the simplest form requires math, visual perception and concentration.

Fun and interesting games like dominoes are played in the La Conner Learning Center every day!  For more information these activities, please contact Program Director Leah Vazquez at (360) 466-3672 or email leahv@skagitclubs.org.
