Inter-Unit Championship Contest Oct. 9

They have our trophy and we want it back. "They" are our good friends from Albany and Corvallis, and points in between, in Unit 477. The trophy goes to the winner of this biannual Inter-Unit Championship contest between Unit 490 (us) and Unit 477 (them). They took possession last April; come and help them return it to us.

Sandwiches top the potluck menu before the game; Unit 490 members are asked to bring salads and desserts. We eat at 12:30 p.m. and play bridge at 1 p.m. on October 9.

Kevin Kacmarynski conducts an entertaining monthly bridge lesson at noon.
Cost to play is $5. Festivities take place at the Keizer/Salem Area Seniors, 930 Plymouth Drive in Keizer. Need a partner? Call Gayle Goodman-Wilkins at 503-371-3556.
