Thank You!
Thank you for helping the Park Avenue Elementary School
raise funds for their Bridge Club’s trip to the Junior Bridge Tournament
in Toronto in July.    We raised $800 in 5 days.

Thank You Again!
Last month I made a request of all of our players regarding the walkway from the Daycare Center next door onto Grand Terrace.  There is a walkway from the Temple next door to the curb at Grand Terrace, allowing the children to cross together to the playground.
I’m so pleased that you have been so helpful.  You have stopped parking in front of that walkway, allowing the children to have a safe place to cross the street.
Thank you for being a good neighbor for us.  Keep up the good work!
