Reminder - the Unit Wide Game contested regularly for more than 5 years has ended its run as of June 2016. The game requires at least 3 clubs in the unit participate at the same time with the same hands. In response to the recent fee increase by the ACBL, the Anderson BC canceled their participation, leaving the Unit unable to continue the game.

"The Longest Day" fundraiser for the Alzheimer Association held Monday June 20 was a big success. We raised over $ 8000.00. I would like to thank all of our members for their generous contributions as well as the directors that donated their time and money to help make this a success. Also a big “Thanks” to Sue Leslie Wheeler who donated her time on the Sunday before the event and helped set up the food on the following day for all the sessions with help from Nancy Sage. Thank you Bob Fisk for organizing the “Silent Auction” and to the people that donated their gifts that helped bring us to our final total -- Justina Clendening.
