SCORE!

1 – 4 pm

Forum Building, Augustana Campus

At SCORE! sharing is the goal, and fun is the result. If you have, you give; if you need, you take. It’s that simple. We transform places of community into a huge free-swap of goods, from clothing to kitchenware to furniture to books to yarn and knitting needles to unused toothbrushes to everything in between. Then, we party with music and food and friends!

So come witness the chaos and joy of community sharing. Drop off your gently used items, and return the next day for a good time! Snag a sweet new sweater or some perfectly faded jeans and spend some time with community.

The Camrose Public Library will also be on-site, stop by the Faith & Life Lounge to learn ways to up-cycle your old books.

It’s the best event of the year, and everyone’s invited!
