TRMC Auxiliary Bridge marathon kicks off Sept. 23

The Trinity Regional Medical Center Auxiliary Bridge Marathon will begin in September. Games will be played starting at 7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of each month from Sept. 23 through May 2014, skipping December.

Participants will play 20 hands of bridge at the Kenyon Place dining room at Friendship Haven. The cards, score sheets and pencils will be there, and Friendship Haven will provide coffee and water. Participants will turn in their score sheets after they finish playing the 20 hands. The play-offs will be at 7 p.m. June 4, 2014, at Kenyon Place. There will be a potluck salad supper with dessert at 6 p.m. Prizes will be awarded.

Each player will pay a $15 contribution to the TRMC Auxiliary. The co-chairs will collect the money at the first game in September. Last year, the bridge marathon players donated $600 to Trinity Regional Auxiliary projects and $100 to Friendship Haven.
