A NEW SMALL GROUP is being planned for people who would like to play bridge for fun. Charlotte Prow is a certified bridge teacher and is offering to teach beginners as well as those wanting to improve their game. Four friends and a standard deck of cards is all that is needed. A study at the University of California Berkeley found that playing bridge helps maintain mental sharpness and boosts the immune system.  Fun social interactions, mental challenge, and health benefits--what could be better? Please contact Charlotte Prow or Mary Evans to express your interest.
