REACH AND CHARITY GAME

A big congratulations to Wayne Kaneko – he just earned his points for RUBY Life Master !! WTG, Wayne

Congratulations to Frances and Jim O’Brien (72.48%) and Nancy Gunn and Bob Klein (72.82%) 70%+ games today during our combined International Charity and REACH events today.  Lots of Red/Black point awarded and for some lucky folks a chance for GOLD.

We have a most supportive club with players bringing extra food (Maureen, where did you get those grapes?) and Cecelia, please give us your recipes for the cran/apple/walnut cake.  All those who help clean up (Brian and Richard – you guys are awesome) a special thanks.  When we all pitch in by bringing bidding boxes to the front, cleaning up our messes, returning table mats, kindles, pencils to the front, we are through in no time.  We are particularly blessed by having the ‘bestest’ director ever, Cecelia, thank you for your support.

Thank you all !  PBC is growing because of your support……. i am humbled

Halloween 2017

Picture one shows three incredibly talented ladies.  They decorated, prepared and cleaned up.  I am beyond appreciation. 

Wanda handed out ‘trick or treat’ candy.  We had several prizes for best costume (won by Kim F.) and drawings.  The gifts were donated by Jan Lee, Lynda McGuire and Karen Rocco (all artists) also known as the clever ACBL chart, the Queen of hearts and the Bidding box.  

 

 

Tons of food from bloody fingers, vomiting pumpkins (hummus and guacamole) spider deviled eggs, eyeball stuffed mushrooms, Sangria just to name a few.  Can’t wait till next Halloween.  Or maybe we should plan another event like St. Patrick’s day.  Can I wait that long?
