Social Cards Club

The Social Cards Club currently meets once a week to play bridge. This fun group meets every Thursday at 1 pm at the Canadian Martyrs site. This ministry has been going on for almost four years, and runs from Sept. to June. For the most part, people “drop in” and there are usually enough people for three to four tables. Everyone is welcome.
