In addition to the activities listed here, some NESFA members gather at the clubhouse almost every Wednesday evening to work, socialize, and play games (usually Dominion). The building is almost always open between 6 pm and 10 pm on Wednesday evenings, and often later.  When the weather is inclement, please call 617-625-2311 to make sure that there are people at the clubhouse before showing up.
The dumpster will be emptied every two weeks on Mondays (except on Tuesday when Monday is a holiday). 
Please leave a clear path to the dumpster, and plenty of clear space around it on pickup days.
