Caregiver Lunch Bunch
The Lunch Bunch is a peer support group for caregivers, offering the opportunity to share experiences, laugh, relax, and exchange knowledge and resources. Bring a bag lunch or something to snack on and take a short break. Your loved one needs you at your best. From mid-October to mid-April, the group meets every Friday at Noon in the Special Interest Room. New members are welcome; there is no cost to attend.

Take center stage singing your favorite song! Practices begin Friday, November 3, 2017 in the Woman’s Club Room room from 9:30 – 11:00am. You have the opportunity to belt your heart out as the audience goes wild. All the best singers on Boca Grande are your backup ensemble; the harmony is amazing. Together, we will work on one new song at every practice, starring a different lead singer each week. You choose the song you want to star in and the rest of the cast will back you up. It’s a chance to improve your vocal quality while having fun. Sharon Ponte and her keyboard will warm us up, rehearsing last week’s number and working on one new song each week. There’s no memorizing. No stress. Just a chance to beam in the spotlight in a fun, comfortable and constructive environment. Sessions are $30, collected weekly.

Club meetings are held at 9:00am in the Houghton Room of the Community Center from November to April. Everyone from the Boca Grande community and surrounding area is invited to join.

The Boca Grande Duplicate Bridge Club
ACBL sanctioned duplicate bridge games are offered at the community center on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from October to May. Starting time for both games is 1:00pm. Lessons are offered on Monday and Wednesday mornings. On Mondays, there will be lessons for novice players (players who know how to play bridge but have limited or no experience at duplicate), as well as for beginners (players who have yet to learn the greatest card game ever). Wednesdays’ lessons are for intermediate players (players who want to improve their bridge skills). The goal for both the games and the lessons is to provide a friendly, supportive environment for all our players. Come and join us! For more information, call 888-407-2622 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
