Oh, the Places I’ve been!

I thought it would be fun to look at when and why I first played bridge in each of the 50 states and D.C., so call it 51. I’ve been to all 51, just haven’t played bridge in all 51 yet! Of course I’ve played outside of the U.S. as well so those places get a mention. If you’re interested in where, when and why I got my start in the states I have played bridge in, then click on these links!

Fundraiser at Culver’s!

The 12th Annual Scholarship fundraiser was held at Culver’s at 1275 SE Oldham Parkway on Monday Aug. 8. 10% of all sales were donated to scholarship funds held with Truman Heartland Community Foundation.  The first fund is the Eugene J. Rolfe Memorial Scholarship Fund, providing $1500 renewable scholarships to Engineering students.  The next fund is the Rolfe Bridge Fund.  This fund provides  $500 renewable scholarships to Kathy’s students who have at least 1 masterpoint upon graduating from high school and who continue to add to the masterpoint holding while in college. The Bridge Fund also provides scholarships to students winning at the local Unit 131 Spring Tournament when a student section is offered.  You can read about these scholarships on this website or read and apply for them via the Truman Heartland Community Foundation.

We raised almost $500 with the Culver’s donation and private donations at the event.  Thanks so much for coming out, even if I didn’t get you on camera!

Here’s a few pictures!
