     Classes and programs will not be held between Monday, December 22 and Thursday, January 1. The building will be open on those days with the exception of Friday, December 26 and it will close early on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. You are welcome to use the building for bridge, pool, meetings or just have a cup of coffee and read the newspaper but we suggest a call first at 203-594-3620.

     With winter weather approaching we want to again remind participants that if the New Canaan Public Schools close for inclement weather, Lapham Center will also close. If the Schools delay, Lapham participants should call 203-594-3620 after 8 a.m. to hear a message about which classes will be held and which will be cancelled. Other than weather, Lapham Center does not follow the NCPS schedule.
