Unit 174 Board of Directors Club Connection Program

The Board set several "areas of emphasis" for this year such as to solicit more input from all of the Unit 174 members and to support the clubs in promoting bridge in their local community. To accomplish this, we agreed to play bridge as a board at a number of clubs. This would provide an opportunity to meet the players face to face.

Four of the board members (Nancy Strohmer, Bill Riley, Kathy Hughes and Rhonda Bryant) and two “enlisted by marriage” board helpers (Hans Strohmer and Nancy Riley) played bridge at the Bar X club in Lake Jackson on Wednesday, September 17. All had fun, good bridge and great homemade cookies made by one of its members.

We plan on playing at more clubs in the months to come.

This photo shows board members Kathy Hughes and Rhonda Bryant playing bridge with two of the younger players: Lucy, age 97, and her partner Ruth.
