Jaime Ingaran, who is our Evening Program Coordinator, thought you might like to binge watch Downton Abbey, Season 1, at a slower pace. She will be showing the award-winning British drama every Wednesday, from June 1- July 13 at 5:30 p.m. There is no fee for this event but it would be very helpful if attendees would register in advance.
