Nearly every month LLDC (www.LegoLandDiscoveryCenter.com) has an AFOL night (Adult Fans Of LEGO, 18+) who reminisce about and/or actively enjoy LEGO. And ILUGNY, a LEGO User Group in the tri-state area, has members who actively enjoy LEGO and who attend these events to meet like-talented adults to share our passion and to participate in the activities. NOTE: Adults NOT bringing child to LLDC are only allowed to go during an Adult Night, which is good because that’s when it’s an adult-friendly atmosphere!
The b-Cause Foundation Block Party (www.CTBlockParty.com, www.facebook.com/CTBlockParty), a neighbor helping neighbor initiative, held a Christmas Tree decorating event for charity on Dec 14th, 2014 at Post154 restaurant in Westport, CT (Yes, it was a Post Office).
The event was sponsored by Simon Pearce, who has a store in Westport. As another of our charity events, LEGO9V and I (BG3D) decorated a Christmas tree for charity using ornaments built by many more ILUGNY members and family at a previous ILUGNY Christmas Party.
Have you been putting off visiting our annual A Billion Bricks exhibition at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center? Well, you only have a few days left! Be sure to get over there and check it out by January 25th.
I LUG NY continued to raise funds to help bring smiles to children’s faces who are being cared for at local children’s hospitals. Every penny raised is used to purchase LEGO to donate to two local children’s hospitals. We partnered with Cohen Children’s Medical Center of NY in the past and have done so once again in 2014. I LUG NY member Brian Wygand delivered a donation of LEGO to Cohen Children’s Medical Center on December 14, almost exactly a year to the date of our previous holiday donation. http://www.ilugny.org/2013/12/15/donation-1-of-2-dropped-off-at-cohen-childrens-medical-center-today/
