Hand and Foot Canasta

Hand and Foot is a game in which each player is dealt two sets of cards - the hand, which is played first, and the foot, which is played when the hand has been used up.  Although most people say that Hand and Foot is best played by four people in partnerships, it can also be played by six in two teams of three, or by any number of people playing as individuals.

Girls' Night Out

We meet at a local restaurant once a month for appetizers or dinner and drinks.

Ladies Lunch Bridge

Do you like to play and socialize? Our two groups play on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, September through May. We start at 9:50 am, break for lunch, and play again until about 2:45 pm. You don't need a partner; we rotate every four hands.
