A Thursday afternoon social bridge group is trying to start back up so, if you are interested, in playing leave your name and phone number with the center’s staff.

Monday: Mornings are full of women pool players and artists. The women have a great time challenging each other’s shots and the painting class members enjoy checking out each other’s art skills. Exercise equipment is available including a treadmill, weight set and exercise bike. The afternoon crowd enjoys playing various games such as bridge, canasta, dominoes, pool and snooker. A jigsaw puzzle table is always set up with a puzzle to solve.

A Veteran’s Affairs representative visits from 1 to 2:45 p.m. offering help with any questions or paperwork pertaining to veteran’s assistance. No appointment is needed.

Wednesday: Pool balls are scattered around as the women practice their shots at 9:30 a.m. Afternoon games begin around 1 p.m. including canasta, dominoes, Texas Hold’em, pitch, pool and snooker. The dramatic movie, “Life of Pi,” will be shown at 2 p.m.
