The Interlakes Bridge Club finally held its “Christmas” party on Jan. 28

The Interlakes Bridge Club finally held its “Christmas” party on Jan. 28, at the home of Pam & Doug Canty. Three tables played a mere 20 boards to allow plenty of time for eating the delicious array of food.

After playing, gifts of appreciation were presented to Pam Canty and Carney Myers; and the award for the highest-ranking pair from Sept. 2015 to May 2016 was presented to Johann Miller and Sharon Stewart.

Tonight’s winners were also Johann Miller and Sharon Stewart, with Wendy Dubbin and Sheila Michener coming second, and Polly Black and Susan Brown third.

The club plays every Wednesday through May; 6:45 p.m. at the Interlakes Community Centre (ICC).
