Director Roman Martin was honored by the Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club for his 80th birthday and for his contributions to the Bridge Club!

Surprise! Surprise!

Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club surprised Director Roman Martin prior to the December 18 game by honoring him on his 80th birthday and for his sustained contributions to the Bridge Club. A group of nearly 100 bridge players assisted Kathy Markham’s delivery of many verses of an original parody of Santa Claus is Coming to Town by lustily singing the chorus “Roman is Directing the Game.”

Following the singing, President Jim Utter presented Roman with a framed original cartoon inspired by Roman and commissioned by the club for this special occasion. The cartoon was created by American Contract Bridge League’s (ACBL) official artist Bill Buttle. It was inscribed, “Artwork for the ACBL Bulletin Inspired by Roman Martin on the Occasion of his 80th Birthday, December 21, 2014. Presented to Roman with Sincere Appreciation by the Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club.”

Overcome with emotion, Roman spoke to the group briefly following the award. The group responded to his remarks with a standing ovation.

Happy birthday Roman and many, many more.
