Duplicate bridge

The Garden City Duplicate Bridge Club held a regular game April 14 playing a 25-board Howell movement. Three full tables produced a total of 15 games plus three slams and a grand slam. The bidding was often tortuous, but Mark and Jody Neuman rose to first place, Ron Patrick and Dorothy Bartlett took second, and May Craig and Jon Kempton remained in third.

Regular games begin at 7 p.m. Monday, 1:15 p.m. Tuesday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St., with all bridge players welcome. For partners, call Kempton at 276-2876.

Wide Awake 4-H

Wide Awake 4-H Club met April 14 at Plymell Elementary School, with members answering roll call by telling what they want to be when they grow up.

Members voted to donate $50 for the Finney County Fair awards and to do the concession stand during Beef Empire Days. They also voted on two community service projects: planting flowers at Plymell Union Church and to take part in the story hour at Finney County Public Library during Beef Empire Days.

Joke of the day was given by Mckenzie Metzger. Devotions were given by Ryan Wessels. Colin Kleysteuber talked about his horse project, Annie Gerber shared about all of her fair projects and Dylan Metzger talked about his steer project.

The club sang "Row Row Row Your Boat" and "Happy Birthday" to all members with April birthdays.

Members donated Jell-O to Emmaus House and were asked to bring macaroni and cheese next month.

The next meeting will begin at 7 p.m. May 12.
