    Is there any pick up bridge games

    available?

  3. Mary-Jane Tanner says:

    My husband and I will be visiting our son in Squamish in late April and early May and would like to join in on any friendly bridge games that would be available. We just like to play regular bridge… some call it Kitchen Bridge. I see there may be some coming so I will watch for it. We come from Ontario and play every week here. Mary-Jane

    • Mary-Jane
      So sorry, we presently don’t have a bridge game in our activities.
      Hope you will enjoy your visit to Squamish, nonetheless.
      Come and visit the Seniors centre for lunch on a weekday – we have an excellent cafeteria.

      Hello Bruce, I’m visiting my son in Squamish (Brackendale). Just saw your name, wondering if you had family in Ontario. I have computer skills if you haven’t joined a class yet.

    We would like to see some physical activities happen…how about carpet bowling…easy on the body..very social and fun.

  6. Christine says:

    Are there any places for seniors to do woodworking in Squamish?

    • The Men’s Shack in Squamish opened earlier in the year near the Cedars. You may want to Google them. Another alternative is to cooperate with the High School. Know of someone who wants to take this on?
