There will be no Evergreen bridge at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center on Friday, Nov. 27. The center is closed for Thanksgiving. There will be a game at the Women’s Club Tuesday, Nov. 24.

We are excited to be having our Christmas Party Dec. 3 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the old Holiday Inn on Jake Alexander Blvd. The Culinary school from Livingstone College is catering the affair. I will be collecting from all of you who have signed up by Thanksgiving. You will be notified very soon. We hope this will be a wonderful occasion.

We had a Howell movement at our Evergreen game on Friday, Nov. 13.

Winners were: First, Betty Bills and Georgia Sorensen; second, Marie Pugh and Ruth Bowles; and tied for third/fourth Andra Cozart and Jan Glover with Loyd Hill and visitor Dennis Eccleston.
