Players score points by trick-taking and forming combinations of cards into melds. Each hand is played in three phases: bidding, melds, and tricks. Learn how to play and conquer the nuances of this social card game in a free class taught by Darlene McTee. Wednesdays 9:00–10:30am GR Writing for Fun The main purpose is to provide a positive environment for seniors to share their creative writing. We strive to provide a warm, supportive environment for posi- tive and constructive feedback. Members of this group can share many forms of creative writings including memoirs, poetry, short stories, essays and observa- tions. Publication is always possible but not a primary goal. Writing can become a medium for self-reflection, self-expres- sion, catharsis and communication. 60053 Mon Oct 2–Dec 4 10:45am–12:30pm SS $10R / $12NR SPECIAL EVENTS Bunko Tuesday We've started a fun game.
