On June 21, the summer solstice, Redwood Bridge Club and the San Diego Bridge Academy joined other groups around the country to participate in The Longest Day, a fundraising effort to support the Alzheimer's Association. Bridge is sometimes called aerobics for the mind, so Alzheimer's is a great cause for us to be involved in. Here are a few photos of the day's activities, which raised >$3,800.
