Honoring Our Friends
by Betty Starzec
Valley Bend Duplicate Bridge Club in Sugar Land TX gave a wonderful surprise to some of its members at its holiday party on Dec. 17. It presented Golden Age Master certificate awards to a number of its members. Pictured from left to right are Mary Reece, Dolores Gwin, C.B. Combs, Marge Britton, Marion Segger, Mary Sue Leatherwood and Barbara Neeper. Not pictured are Ruth Horelica, Dr. Glen Hendrickson, Irma Hiltl, Doris Baker and Dorothy Voss.
Valley Bend Bridge Club is a combination of Quail Valley and Riverbend Bridge Clubs which were in existence for more than 30 years. As our membership ages, we wanted to celebrate the careers of some remarkable players. The holiday party seemed just the right place to honor these wonderful friends.
