The next time you see Bill Mogensen say "Thank You." For the last two years he has been lobbying Rohan Recreation Center to add two more tables. Today it happened, when we arrived there were six tables instead of only four. There was a good crowd but instead of sitting around the waiting to play they were at the tables playing.
Congratulations to Roni Greenberg and Bill Mogensen, winners of Sunday's random draw mixed doubles tournament with 26 wins. In second place Rita Williams and Cornel West with 24 wins. Tied for third place with 23 wins were Deb Harrison and Ron Taylor, Deb Curtis and George Grim, and Fran Holmsten and Bruce Gintoft.

On Sunday December 17 about 100 of our friends collected in the Lincoln room at Laurel Manor for the annual Holiday Pot Luck Dinner. Like every other year we didn’t make any suggestions about who brings what dish. But as I was walking down the line a clear theme emerged, meatballs. There were many different styles of meatballs. Yes, we had lots of other delicious choices but I love meatballs.
