Cards and Games

There are several groups that meet regularly in the clubhouse to play cards, Mahjongg and Bingo.  You don’t need to be an expert to join any of these groups, but some knowledge of the game is necessary.  All of these groups welcome new members, so if there is a game you enjoy, come join the fun!

For more information about a card or game club, call the person listed in the Summerfield Directory under Cards and Games.
