Just Among Friends
The Fifth Wednesday Bridge Club met at the Holland House on March 29 for an afternoon of fun playing bridge. The Holland House was charmingly decorated for spring and Easter with many attractive arrangements. Joyce's perennial evergreen tree which was decorated with Easter bunnies, eggs, and other seasonal items added a whimsical touch. Hostesses for the occasion were Susan Burt, Joyce Dansby, and Jan Williamson.
After a luscious lunch followed by a delicious dessert of pound cake topped with blueberry sauce and whipped cream, everyone felt ready to begin playing.
Members who enjoyed the day were: Susan Burt, Joyce Dansby, Ray Fleming, Beth Henson, Sara Hinkle, Susan King, June Nowell, Carol Oliphant, Alice Rowe, Charlene Webb, and a guest, Jan Cooper. It was a good time for everyone to say thanks to the hostesses who prepared and served the lunch as well as performed hostess duties.

The women of Holy Cross Catholic Church gathered together in the Parish Hall on March 29 to give them an opportunity to become better acquainted with each other with the objectives of organizing activities for fun, fellowship and establishing relationships that will result in the parish becoming a closer knit, cohesive church family.
This first meeting was fun with a picnic sandwich type meal served. Everyone wore a name tag so we could meet those we didn't know. Future meetings will be held on the fourth Wednesday of each month. We would love to have all of the women in the church come and join us!
