Bridge Keeps Us Young!

Rose Steerman and partner, Alan Minton, played at The Fort Lauderdale Bridge Club recently and came in 6th overall with a 51% game. One of the highlights of their game was Rose making a contract of 4 Spades, doubled, with a 5-0 trump split. When Rose's opponent doubled her, she said to him, "Nobody doubles me where I usually play bridge." We now know why!

Rose is 100 years old (101 in June) and plays bridge about five times a week at Miami Shores winning regularly. She also organized a Saturday game at the assisted living facility where she lives.

Rose is living proof that bridge keeps us young!
