Clubs Senior Citizens Center
We had a brief break in our cold weather so 14 pitch, six pinochle and 13 bridge players spent Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 13 enjoying the warmth there and practiced their card playing skills.
Bridge winners were: Ernie Miller, high; Jim Prosser, second; Barb Kronaizl, blind bogie and Louise Scott, low.
The center furnished the coffee break refreshments.
The regular last Monday of the month card party at the center was cancelled because of blowing snow with high winds causing the wind chill to be between 40 to 60 degrees below zero. The Senior Citizens Center was closed.
