Meets every Wednesday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the homes of the members.  Members bring a bag lunch and the hostess of the day provides dessert and refreshments.  We play "party bridge" and would gladly add new members to the group.  We would like to invite anyone who likes to play.  If you have not played the game for a long time and would like to refresh your skills, we would like to set up a special Refresher Table.
