“Introducing Mahjongg” on first Fridays

Next meeting on March 6th, 2015 at 1:00pm

If you want to learn how to play Mahjongg, mark your calendar for the first Friday.  The first Friday of each month is dedicated to “Introducing Mahjongg.” From 1:00-3:00, Suzie will work with you on the fundamentals and rules of the game. From 3:00-4:00 you will get a chance to play with knowledgeable players. The rest of the month on Fridays you can strengthen your skills and really “get your game on.” Then, please, join the group on Mondays for an evening of fast and fun Mahjongg.   The cost of the tutorial packet is $5.00. Be sure to register at the library before you begin your Friday classes.
