BILL SEARCY CHOSEN FOR SB 2019 SERVICE AWARD

The South Bend Bridge Club proudly  presented the 2019 Service Award at the Annual Meeting on September 11th to Bill Searcy (pictured with SB Club Director, Tricia Killeen).  Our honoree is not only a director, but more than that, he works very hard to bring some fun to the game, is the resident chef and cheer leader for the SB Pro-am Games,  runs Swiss Team games smoothly, and also serves on the Board of Directors. Bill’s name has been inscribed on the service award plaque located on the wall by the entrance.

Bill’s reaction.... “I was very surprised and honored to receive the honorary award.  I believe all of the members should make it their function to make sure our members have an enjoyable time at the Bridge Center.

“Bridge is, first of all, a game of ladies and gentlemen. We come to have an enjoyable afternoon when we play.. ....... I urge every one of our members to remember the fun here. Encourage your friends to join us. We will be better because of your efforts.  Thanks to you all.”

FOREVER LEARNING AT THE SOUTH BEND CLUB

The Forever Learning class of 22 students has met 3 times so far at the South Bend Club and will continue through 11/21. Tricia Killeen thanks all the mentors who are donating their time with this program: Tom and Connie Hebron, Joan Tobler, Tom Hallum, Leslie Garvey, Marty Martin, John Killeen, Candy Hurwich, and Donna Tieman.  We thank Tricia for her tireless dedication to introducing this game to so many people.  South Bend is blessed to have so many special people in their Club!

NEW ADDITION TO SOUTH BEND & THE 90+ WALL

Bob Binder recently moved from Arizona to be near his brother, Fred, and to enjoy our wonderful midwest weather. He will certainly provide us with

another formidable bridge player. We are happy to welcome him as a new member of the SBBC and, since  he turned 90 some years ago before joining our group, his picture is being added to the “90+ Wall”  located near the

Celebrity Wall.  WELCOME BOB!
