No Sunday Unit Game in August

We're taking the month of August off from Sunday Unit Game bridge. We'll resume Sept. 6—in the middle of Labor Day weekend. Players are asked to bring salads and desserts for the 12:30 p.m. potluck—the main item on the menu is to be determined. The game follows at 1. Kevin Kacmarynski conducts a free mini-lesson at 11:45 a.m. Need a partner for the game? Call Gayle Goodman-Wilkins at (503) 371-3556.
