Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club had 16 women and men came in to prove to the others that their art of playing bridge was better than theirs!
When the last board or hand was played and the scores tallied, it revealed that Jackye Hohman and Carol Ehlers were 1st in Flight A, tied for 2nd in Flight A were Lois Harbour and Toni Pritchett and Roberta Meyer and Ruthie Jenkins. Flight B winners were 1st-Sarah Pentecost and Tom Beard and 2nd-Dot Beach and Bertha Henry.
The players enjoyed the delicious refreshments, which included fresh shrimp salad with Ritz, Pepper Jack cheese with crackers, Spinach dip with scoops, wedges of cantaloupe, English toffee candy bars, Cokes, coffee and chips.
For a few weeks, we are going to tour the White House where our Presidents and First Ladies have resided.
Many of the early furnishings at the presidents’ house was lost when the British burned Washington during the War of 1812. In rebuilding the burned-out-shell, white paint was used on the exterior to cover the traces of the fire. The name White House was not officially adopted until 1901, but was known as the White House from 1816, because of the use of white paint.
Next week we will go inside the White House. All of the presidents left something of themselves in the most famous house in the United States. wcp 6-24-10
