Celeste is helping to coordinate a local group to identify and eventually develop a center in Racine County for adults 55 and older. Our neighbors in Milwaukee have 5 centers offering recreational and enrichment programs to 100's of adults every week. With this survey, we can identify the needs of what we want available here in Racine. Above is the link to a brief survey to see what our community wants in a future center. Anyone interested in knowing more can contact me at 262-939-0799.

On the other table: Dave Benjamin/Tom Krug won 2 straight defeating Bob Letsch/CW and

George Gordon/Bobby Letsch. O'Brien and Benjamin had to leave. Dan DeMathew/Mike Hyduke, George Gordon/ Bobby Letsch were defeated in 1st game by Bob Letsch/CW only to come back and win the next two games.
