Exploring Our Interest Groups – Fun and Games by Cherril Peabody

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. But what about Jane? She deserves a break, too! Evidently, our branch members agree since AAUW Sacramento has several interest groups that feature playing games of various kinds.

The Board Games group gets together on the last Friday evening of each month to play all kinds of card and board games. The group has a new chair, Judy Smith, who has taken over from Anne Rhodes, who is moving to Texas. Anyone interested in joining the group can contact Judy at swedishjudy@gmail.com.

The Scrabble for Fun group meets on the last Monday afternoon of each month, and members play two or three people to a board. Vivian Counts is the chair, and you can reach her at viviancounts@yahoo.com.

Then there are the bridge groups. The Chicago Bridge group, led by Margot Leidig, plays a style of bridge that apparently originated in the windy city. They meet on the fourth Wednesday in the morning and don’t need regular members, but they do often need substitutes. Contact Margot to be added to the list at MHLeidig@aol.com. Jane Reinmuth chairs the Bridge for Fun group, which meets on the first Tuesday afternoon each month. This group also needs substitutes, and you can contact Jane if you are interested at cajane42@aol.com.

Contact any of the chairs if you’d like to put some fun back in your life!
