St. Bernard Second Monday Pinochle
Attention all pinochle
players There is an opportunity to play every month, 12 months a year. The St. Bernard’s Women’s Club sponsors a pinochle group that meets the second Monday of every month at 6 p.m. for nibbling of snacks and socializing, with play beginning at 6:30 p.m., or as soon as everyone is gathered in the parish hall of St. Bernard Catholic Church, 1 St. Bernard Ln. Ever wanted to get a really big score in pinochle? Here is the opportunity to do so! How can the promise be made for really big scores? Because our version of double-deck pinochle gives really big bonus points for some frequently occurring groups of cards. Never played this version before? Not a problem! It’s easy to grasp the version the first night: simple, fun and payouts for winners made every week. Just $1 (yes, $1) entry fee each time and four to five places plus low-man go home with winnings.
Participants are encouraged to bring a snack or, if they forget, not to worry because there is always an abundance of tempting treats. Sign up with a partner or come alone — both are welcome — and know that those who are unable to play one month do not have to get a sub. And participants do not have to be a member of St. Bernard’s to play. Call Fran Olsen-Parrish @ 685-5376 ASAP to get in on the fun.
