For well over 40+ years, ladies of Trinity have enjoyed meeting twice a month for games of Bridge.  It is a friendly group whose common denominators are camaraderie and cards.  You don't need to be a tournament level player but knowledge of the game and play of the cards is helpful.  The ladies meet the first and second Thursday; September through May at 1:00pm in members' homes.  If you are interested in joining us or would like more information, please contact Marie DiBello.
