Anne Reilly
Anne Reilly

Today we have lost one of our own - yes an addicted player and even more passionate bridge teacher.

Anne started playing bridge in the year 2000, joined TBC in 2003 and commenced teaching in 2007. Anne believed in her system with strong conviction and gave endless time and assistance to her numerous students.

Anne also inspired a team of teaching assistants who will no longer have her wealth of knowledge to draw upon.

TBC members say "Thank you Anne Reilly for being a Toronto member and friend".
