*Hosts occasional beach bonfires

*Provide occasional outings to cool local places

*Provides NW forest passes for accessing local recreational areas

*Sponsors movie nights at the OIMB Boathouse

*Provides recreational equipment such as camping gear, volleyballs, soccer balls, basketballs and badminton rackets as well as board games and puzzles
