With great sadness we announce that Jane Guest passed away Thursday after a brief battle with cancer.

Jane was a long time valued member and volunteer of this bridge club and a trusted friend to many of us.

She will be sorely missed by the club, her bridge partners, her many friends, the community, and her family.

To honour Jane, our annual July club championship games will now be called the Jane Guest championship games.

We can all honour Jane by playing well and being courteous, friendly, trustworthy, and honourable, like Jane.

A remembrance for Jane will be held Thursday July 18 2:30-4:30 at George's restaurant on Harbour Street.

Congratulations to Guy and Sheila Murray - Jane Guest Monday Club champions on July 15.
