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 posi- tive environment for seniors to share their creative writing. We strive to pro- vide a warm, supportive environment for positive and constructive feedback. Members of this group can share many forms of creative writings including memoirs, poetry, short stories, essays and observations. Publication is always possible but not a primary goal. Writing can become a medium for self-reflection, self-expression and communication.
