Monthly Events


Knitting Club

Beginners are welcome, but must register; we will have two teachers here to get you started on simple stitches and patterns! If you are a full or part time knitter already, you are welcome as well, we can work together to have a strong Knitting Group that meets one time per month! Future plans include Knitting for a Cause and other fun events! If you are an expert bring your knowledge and anything you are working on now, and just stop in and check us out!

Popcorn Night

EVERY LAST THURSDAY! The Hill Street Country Club is hosting a movie night at the Oceanside Civic Center Public Library. To get into the art vibe of things, Popcorn Night will begin with an art project while listening to a live DeeJay spin a special mix of music followed by a screening of cult classic films. Tentative schedule: Art Project at 5:30pm and Movie Screening at 7:00. Throughout the evening guests can enjoy refreshments and popcorn provided by our sponsors, but are encouraged to bring food and picnic with their families. Refreshments and art projects are both free - so come and enjoy this family-friendly night with The Hill Street Country Club and the Oceanside Public Library.
