This year we will again participate in The Longest Day, an annual event endorsed by ACBL to raise money to address the emotional, physical, and mental needs of persons with Alzheimer’s and those who care for them. If you wish to donate to this worthy cause you may do so at this website: Bridge in the Park 2017. You can also bring a donation to the club. Checks must be made payable to "Alzheimer's Association."
Although the temps don't show it, change is in the air at Redwood. Our affiliates, the folks at the San Diego Bridge Academy, are trying out a new ACBL-sanctioned game on Friday mornings at 9:30, and it's being held in Redwood's newly carpeted and redecorated classroom.
And speaking of change, check out our newly landscaped front entrance! Thanks to Onstance Robinson for her design concept and hard work!
Our April newsletter is now available at the club or by clicking on the images below. The lead story is a visit scheduled for May 7 by ACBL's chief executive, Robert Hartman. He will meet with members, speak to the media, and play in one of our sanctioned games that day.
Hartman's visit is part of a national tour to promote The Longest Day, our Alzheimer's fundraising event scheduled for June 20. For more information or to contribute, go to our TLD site: Bridge in the Park. To donate, click on the yellow "Donate" button.
