Our Charity Event, chaired by Vice President Sharon Skoworn, was Jan. 26. Entry fee to play was $20 minimum, and the money was donated to St Mary’s Food Bank. Food boxes were also available for donations until the end of January. There was no luncheon because of the CDC restrictions. The game of the day was an ABCD pairing of 6-6-6.

In February, we are looking forward to our club championship which will be the first three Tuesdays.

Play well—stay safe.
