Dresden Duplicate Club had two duplicate games this past week. The Tuesday Night Club met on the July 13 with three tables in play. Charlotte Erwin and Fredrika Schleifer of Union City served as hostesses. They served ham and cheese sandwiches with lettuce and dressings on the side, potato chips and Deli Ham Dip hot from the oven with scoops and pink lemonade.
For dessert, they had chocolate chip nut cake. Our Commander Jackie Darnell especially enjoyed the chocolate cake.
After all the boards were played, winners emerged. First were Kathy Wilson and Susie German of Dresden. Second were Linda Jenings and Becky Bennett of Dresden, and third was Alma Ford, of Martin and Sarah Pentecost, of Dresden.
The Wednesday club met the following day and had six tables in play. We meet at 12:30 p.m. They were there to play competitive bridge and enjoy having fancy hors d’ oeuvres. There were two trays of crudites with dip, carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, olives, cauliflower, broccoli and huge blackberries. The blackberries were compliments of Marie and Kenneth Winstead. Thank you so much! Then we had a beef Cheese Ball with crackers and cantaloupe. For dessert, we had mini loaves of Lucy Bogue’s Banana Nut Bread.
Winners were first N/S – Jack Bogue, of Milan and Freddye Oliver, of Union City, second – Peg Mayo, of Dresden and Jo Glasgow, of Union City, third – Minnie Bess Williams, of Paris and Lois Harbour, of Union City. First E/S – Jean and Harlan McCartney of Paris, second E/W – Sue Thompson, of Paris and Toni Pritchett and Tom Beard and Sarah Pentecost, of Dresden.
Winners in Flight B were first – Bertha Henry, of Martin, Dot Bach, of South Fulton and second – Alma Ford and Linda Jennings.
Now it is time to go to the White House and visit The Red Room.
Still another parlor or sitting room, the walls of the Red Room are hung in cerise silk, and the furniture is upholstered in the same. Accents of gold are used in much the same way as in the Blue Room. The Red Room is a good example of the American Empire peios, circa early 1800s.
