Coronavirus Updates

Unit 191 related Coronavirus information will be listed here as updates become available.  Please refer to specific bridge club websites for the latest information on their game schedules, online games, cancelations, and closings.

Thank you so much for contributing to our fundraiser to support our Bridge Clubs.  To date, we have been very successful and are pausing collection of donations for the time being.  We feel confident that we can help the clubs with expenses through the first week of June.  Given the uncertain timeline for the pandemic, it is unclear if more support will be needed.  We will assess again in June.  Again, Chris and Henry and the Unit 191 Board of Directors thanks you for your support.  We will get through this together.
