Farewell Margaret Somers

On Saturday 6 April, the Club bid farewell to Margaret Somers who is moving away from Toronto to be closer to her family.

Margaret's good friend and bridge partner, Josie O'Donnell, gave a lovely tribute to her friend and said she had never heard Margaret say a bad word about anyone. Margaret started a social bridge game she and her friends still play on Wednesdays. She joined TBC in 2018 having been a member of the Charlestown Bridge Club previously.

We wish Margaret the best of luck with her move and we shall miss her.
