Presidents Corner June 2021

Dear Fellow Bridge Players,

“Gray skies are gonna clear up, Put on a happy face. Brush off the clouds and cheer up Put on a happy face!”

This is how I feel and I hope you are feeling the same! After 18 months, our Bridge Center is opening Monday, June 14th! The board is working hard to get the Center in tip top shape! We are cleaning from top to bottom! The carpet and upholstered chairs have been professionally cleaned, plus all the hard surface floors have been steamed. On Saturday, June 12th, we will be wiping down all the tables and bidding boxes. You might want to wear your sunglasses when you come in Monday!

When you arrive at Bridge Center on Monday, please enter through the front door, or the back door by “Brian’s Office. We will have people waiting to check your vaccination card, so please have it out and ready. We will check your name off of our list, and you will not have to show it again. We will continue this procedure for at least the first week or maybe longer.

The Board and I are looking forward to seeing you at Bridge Center. Put on your “Happy Face!”
