UNIT 174 Board of Directors Club Connection Program

Bill Riley, club manager Virginia Mayhew, and Nancy Strohmer

The Board continued our program to connect with our Unit members and traveled to Livingston up Hwy 59, soon to be Interstate 69.  The Livingston bridge club meets every Friday at the Catfish Grill.  This club marks the Northeast boundary of UNIT 174.

Two of the board members (Nancy Strohmer and Bill Riley) and 2 spouses, Hans Strohmer and Nancy Riley, played bridge on April 3rd.  The game breaks after 5 rounds and all have a great meal.  Several of us had to have the catfish.  All had fun and good bridge.

Our next visit will be to the Clear Lake club on May 1st.
