    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.

    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 brings either an appetizer or dessert and contributes $5 when they arrive to cover the cost of the drinks. 

    Thank you to Jeanne Piscitello for hosting our January meeting. We had a lively discussion and our ratings were the following: ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD 6.5 out of 10 and THE GREATEST SHOWMAN 7.0

    The next meeting of Critics’ Corner we will start  with appetizers and drinks before discussing THE POST - a cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents and pushed the country’s first female publisher and hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between the press and the government. Director: Steven Spielberg Writers: Liz Hannah and Josh Singer Stars: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Sarah Paulson

    PHANTOM THREAD Set in 1950’s London, Reynolds Woodcock is a renowned dressmaker whose fastidious life is disrupted by a young, strong-willed woman, Alma, who becomes his muse and lover. Director and writer: Paul Thomas Anderson, Stars: Vicky Krieps, Daniel Day-Lewis and Lesley Manville.

    Please contact Jeannette Glazer at glazerje@yahoo.com or by calling 203-966-2063 if you'd like to join the group or to RSVP for our next Critics Corner.

    • Lapham Center (downstairs)

    This month, we will be discussing Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan. With the atmosphere of a noir thriller, Egan’s first historical novel follows a man and a woman into a world populated by gangsters, sailors, divers, bankers, and union men. It is a deft, dazzling, propulsive exploration of a transformative moment in the lives and identities of women and men, of America and the world.

    We will meet downstairs at Lapham at 1:30 pm. Please contact Joan at 203-972-8888 or ehwrb@sbcglobal.net, if you plan to attend.

    Plan to attend our Winter Luncheon  where the focus will be YOU. Julie Pryor of Pryority fitness will be our guest speaker, discussing: “PRYORITY YOU: Forging a Path to Ultimate Health and Wellness.” It is always good to remember to focus on ourselves! As women our focus tends to be on others, but this New Year is the perfect time to focus on the importance of our own physical and emotional health. When we are strong, all those around us gain strength.

    If you haven't been to the Roger Sherman Inn lately, then  you'll be in for a treat as renowned Executive Chef Francois Kwaku-Dongo will be preparing a seasonally-inspired menu showcasing fresh, locally procured ingredients.
