    If you enjoy going to the movies and love an opportunity to discuss the movie with other movie enthusiasts, then you should consider joining Critics’ Corner.  We meet at a member’s house.  After socializing over appetizers and some drinks, we then discuss and rate the two movies, which we will have already seen on our own.  Each attendee pays $5 to cover the cost of the drinks and brings either an appetizer or dessert.

    Thank you to Lois and Dick Sandberg who hosted the March meeting. We had lively discussions and rated:

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - 7.6 out of 10

    Darkest Hour –  7.6 out of 10

    The next meeting of Critics’ Corner will be Friday, April 27th, at the home of Elizabeth Behnke.  The movies we will discuss are: I, Tonya and Isle of Dogs

    Please send me your e-mail address or call me and I will keep you informed.

    • Lapham Center, Waveny Park

    This group was created for purely social bridge where players of all levels can just have fun practicing and improving their skills while enjoying the company of other ladies who are there to do the same thing. We are a fun-loving group and welcome players of all levels to be members of a set group or as substitutes. 

    We play bridge on the second Wednesday of the month from September through May starting at 9:15 at the Lapham Center. If you would like to join us for social bridge, as a substitute or just check us out, please contact Simin Zendehrouh at siminzee@yahoo.com.

    Join us as we visit the spectacular Wave Hill, a 28-acre public garden overlooking the Hudson River and the Palisades in the Riverdale section of the Bronx.

    We will meet at Waveny in the top parking lot in front of the Mansion at 9:15 and carpool to Wave Hill.  We have booked a Guided Garden Tour which will give us an overview of the most incredible collection of plants and beautiful views from the gardens. The tour will last one hour and will take place, rain or shine. Wear comfortable walking shoes! It is not strenuous walking but you will want to be comfortable. After the tour, we will have a boxed lunch in the Gardens and then will have time to explore a bit on our own before returning to Waveny.  We plan to return by 3:00 pm
