Cold and Flu Season
Cold and Flu Season

Be healthy everyone! And be courteous at our Bridge games. The holidays bring travel and travel brings exposure to germs. Keep your germs away from the bridge table. Even if you have to cancel a game, we all appreciate any effort to confine contagions. Remember, stay home if you are sick!
