A group of line dancers sometimes stay and have a good time stepping in time to the music. At 1 p.m., afternoon games such as canasta, dominoes, social bridge, pool, snooker and puzzle solving get started. At 2 p.m. bingo is called. A lot of laughs are always shared during this time. Don’t miss out on the good times. Thursday evening, the doors open back up at 5:30 p.m. for a night of music. The musicians tune up and start some good ol’ country tunes at 6 p.m. Come tap your toes with everybody!

Friday: The women pool players and the painting group come in at 9:30 a.m. Exercise equipment is available for use, along with a pingpong table or Wii player. Check out the afternoon games of cards, pool, snooker, Texas Hold’em, dominoes and puzzle solving.
