The Senior Center seems to be very well received in this community. Along with Duplicate Bridge, there will be twice as many 500 club players in another room, with many who will come early to have lunch, which is served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Wednesdays, a group of “needle” experts meet in another room. Another activity which made the Mower County Senior Living page explained the value of “movement” for the elderly. Classes are held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10:15 a.m. This writer will give this one a try next week.

Players for Bridge come from Rose Creek, Austin, Mason City and Albert Lea. We’re always looking to increase our numbers. We’re hoping  for competition from Adams and Grand Meadow. Everyone is welcome.
