History Club will be hosting a Valentine's Day Party on Monday February 15th at 7pm in Hailstones 101. We will hear about the history of the Valentine's Day Massacre, play an exciting game or two of Murder (click on the hyperlink to learn more, our game is a variation of the one described), and have pizza and sweets for everyone to enjoy.

It is the more the merrier for our game so bring some friends. Hope to see you all there.
