Thank you for a successful Longest Day

Sixty-six virtual tables played in the online bridge games. Thirty-four players from 3 countries and 16 states competed in the Scrabble events, with a Connecticut high school student winning the Youth Tournament and Connecticut 5th grader winning their division in the Night Bird event. Thanks to the generosity of our members, players and community over $5,700 has been raised for the Alzheimer's Association so far.
