Bridge club looking for new players

Ashcroft group meets Thursday afternoons at the Legion

Monday Seniors Bridge is into another successful year. The club has been playing “Party Bridge” for the past 40 years, with Marj Lapointe as the longest playing member. Our newest members are Ina Gory, Marina Papais, Lorrie Girard, and we have Ron Richardson who comes all the way from Lillooet to play with us.

So far, the most games won this yea is held by Dorothy Maksymiw and the highest score of all times has been achieved by Pat Kirby with a score of 9400 – seven games played. Congratulations to both of you.

A big thank you to all who bring baking to enjoy with our coffee break.

We are always looking for new players. If you are interested, call Lil Liesch at 457-9383 or Pat Kirby at the Senior Centre, 453-9828. You will find us very social and friendly. All we ask of our members is that you show up when you say you are coming.
