LINC continues to expand its community chess program taking advantage of the summer months to do new things and offer three chess-related activities during June and July.
First, is the LINC Chess University which teaches LINC staff, volunteers, and chess parents how to play and teach chess during two-week sessions.
The first session is being held at the Plaza Public Library (June 3-14) and the second at Fairmount Community Center in Independence (June 17-28). Register for a session online!
