Christmas carolling

A group gathered for refreshments and singing on Thursday and a great time was had by all!  Dave Elston led us on the keyboard and Brian Rice again entertained us with his original Christmas Carols.  For those of you unable to join us, here are the words for one of those carols (tune is Jingle Bells)

One no Trump! One no Trump!

One No all the Way!

Oh what fun it is to bid

Harder if you have to play – Heh!


Now they interfere,

Are our systems on?

My partner sheds a tear,

Our hope for game is gone.

Cappelletti or DONT?

To ask would be my right,

As usual my partner won't.

I quit, it's not our Night!

Help Support Youth Bridge

Bridge is for All Ages - Help Needed!

Rosemary Thompson will be facilitating a Youth Bridge Club at Jean Vanier Separate School from January to April 2018. Students from Grades 6 to 8 will be attending her classes from 12:15 pm to 1:10 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting on January 9, 2018. Rosemary will offer some introductory bridge instructions and then coach her students through some pre-selected hands.

Youth Bridge

While Rosemary prepares and conducts her bridge classes by herself, she would definitely appreciate some volunteers to help supervise and advise the children as they play their pre-set hands. If you would like to volunteer to help kids learn to play bridge then please email Rosemary at:  or call her at 519-473-6572.

Let’s help Rosemary introduce bridge to youth, the game we all so much enjoy.
