Please Join Us at HBC
On Tuesday, June 20
(The Summer Solstice)
as we celebrate The Longest Day --
an event to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Schedule of Events

*Preregistration for the afternoon open game and/or the pot luck lunch must be made at the club in person or by phone -- not online. A sign-up sheet is available on the club bulletin board.
Table fees for all games will be $10/person—with the extra money going to the Alzheimer’s Association. All games are charity games and will award extra points. In addition, masterpoints awarded for the evening in-house game will be based on the number of tables in both the in-house and online evening games.
Please try to join us for as many of these games as possible! The more you play on that day, the more funds HBC will raise for Alzheimer’s care and research – a cause that’s important to all of us!
