Come join us for a fun-filled morning of Bunco. As it is played today, Bunco is a social dice game played in teams of four, involving 100% luck and very little skill as there are few decisions to be made. The rules are simple and can be learned in five minutes or less. Beginners and experienced players are welcome. For information, contact Joy Anderson at jma82182@aol.com.

Dates: 3rd Friday of each month, beginning Jul 21st.
Time: 9:30 am – Noon
