Letter From Your President

Hello Everyone.

I hope all of you are well-- I miss you.

This is a hard time for all of us. We miss our social life at the Bridge Club and our friends.

I've decided to use a little of the time i normally dedicate to bridge to a couple of my  other favorite activities like gardening,playing bridge online,and talking with friends. I hope you can find other things you enjoy.

Call a new friend out of the Bridge directory,write a letter to someone in need,play bridge online,send jokes and funny sayings,log into the Zoom App and see your family and friends. Ask someone to help you connect to Zoom.

These are unusual times. They are temporary.

We can do this!  If we can play the game of bridge anything is possible. Reach out to your friends,they will enjoy hearing from you. We will get  through this like we did for Katrina and we will all be back playing the game we love--SOON.

Stay healthy and connected to our bridge community.
