Canasta - View Flyer
Canasta is a card game of the rummy family of games believed to be a variant of 500 Rum.
Although many variations exist for two, three, five or six players, it is most commonly played by
four in two partnerships with two standard decks of cards. Players attempt to make melds of
seven cards of the same rank and “go out” by playing all cards in their hand. It is the only
partnership member of the family of Rummy games to achieve the status of a classic.
LOCATION: Hickory/Oak TIME: 1:00pm-3:30pm
Duplicate Bridge - View Flyer
This contract bridge game is called duplicate because the same bridge deal (i.e. the specific arrangement of the 52 cards into the four hands) is played at each table and scoring is based on relative performance. In this way, every hand, whether strong or weak, is played in competition with others playing the identical cards, and the element of skill is heightened while that of chance is reduced.
LOCATION: CC, Hickory/Oak TIME: 6:15-10:15 pm
Lunch & Learn Lecture Series
We will join forces with several different agencies to bring a lecture series to our active adult group. Topics will vary throughout the year. They will take place on Thursdays from 12:00 -1:00 pm, prior to regularly scheduled Golden Years meetings. Topics and dates will be listed in the Active Adult Adventures newsletters.
Join us each month for an afternoon movie on the big screen! Admission is free to our Golden Years members. Popcorn and pop will be sold for a nominal fee. Movie titles will be announced in the Active Adult newsletter and monthly happenings.
