Card play­ers ante up for lo­cal chil­dren

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

The Canada-USA Bridge Group, the lo­cal bridge-play­ing club that meets regularly in the homes of its mem­bers to play, pre­sented their an­nual cheque to the CAB RH Rediker’s Chil­dren’s Pro­gram (PACE) on Mon­day. The Club was able to raise $400 for the CAB this year, money that will be used to buy healthy snacks for the kids in the pro­gram.

The Club fin­ished its latest sea­son in April and held its big Bridge party in May. The two top teams of the sea­son were Lil­ian Kelly and Huguette Black, from the United States, and Fran Wil­liams and Bar­bara Var­ney from Canada. The Club will start up again in July.

The Canada-USA Bridge Group, which has mem­bers from both sides of the bor­der, is al­ways look­ing for new two-per­son teams of Bridge play­ers to join the fun. If you would like more in­for­ma­tion or want to join, call Jean Harris at 819 876-5937 or El­iz­a­beth Os­tiguy at 819 838-5830.
