Big Bridge Party this Satur­day

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier

This Satur­day evening, the Canada/usa Bridge Group is hold­ing its end of sea­son Bridge Party at Stanstead’s Centenary United Church. There are al­ready six ta­bles of Bridge and two ta­bles of Five Hun­dred re­served, how­ever, there is still room for one or two more ta­bles of bridge is there is a four­some out there who would like to take part. The mod­est fee to en­ter in­cludes desserts, tea and cof­fee and the chance to win door prizes. Prizes will also be given out to the group mem­bers with the high­est bridge scores.

The Bridge party this Satur­day is not only the sea­son fi­nale un­til the games start up again in Septem­ber, it is also a final fundraiser of the sea­son. Fol­low­ing the party, all the money col­lected dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son (it costs mem­bers $2 each time they play) and the en­trance fee col­lected this Satur­day, af­ter ex­penses, will be do­nated to the CAB RH Rediker’s Chil­dren’s Pro­gram.

“We now have seven teams in the club but it would be nice to have about ten. We’re a very con­ge­nial group who is anx­ious for new mem­bers,” men­tioned mem­ber Jean Har­ris. Mem­bers of the group come from Stanstead, Ver­mont, Ayer’s Cliff, Ge­orgeville and North Hat­ley and they take turns play­ing in each other’s homes, or­ga­niz­ing their own bridge af­ter­noons or evenings amongst the dif­fer­ent teams. “We’re very flex­i­ble like that. Peo­ple can play any day of the week or on the week­end, day­time or evening. It’s what­ever the teams ar­range be­tween them­selves,” ex­plained Mrs. Har­ris.

Although it is prefer­able if peo­ple join the group in pairs to keep the num­bers even, they do try to team up sin­gle peo­ple who would like to join. For more in­for­ma­tion about this Satur­day’s party or about join­ing the club, call Jean Har­ris at 819 8765937.
