Jupiters at the Crossing

We will have a quick and informal Barkstall PTA meeting at 7pm followed by time to visit with other Barkstall families and celebrate 2017 coming to a close.  We reserved tables downstairs so if you would like to bring your children they can feel free to run around and play games in that area. Please plan on purchasing your own food, drinks and tokens for the games. Jupiters will have a special that night where any large pizza ordered for dine in would be half off.
