The LBA directory is undergoing its final edits!  We hope you have had an opportunity over the past two weeks to take a look at the rough draft.  It is on the front table at the club and will remain available for review all week.  You can reach her with last minute updates this week only  





Our club came in 16th out of 203 teams who participated in the Longest Day. 

We raised over $15,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association. 

As a gesture of gratitude, the ACBL is awarding the LBA with a prize. 

We are holding a raffle on Friday, September 29th to give the prize to one of our members. 

Anyone who plays in the face-to-face games the week of September 25 is eligible for one raffle ticket.

The winner will be able to select a gift from the list the ACBL has provided.

We need volunteers to give out the raffle tickets.

If you can help out before one of the games next week,

please contact Carolyn at

Jennie Sauviac and Sherrie Goodman delivered a check on behalf of LBA in memory of John Onstott to Betty Starzec of the Education Foundation.  There was a lovely article about John in the NABC Daily Bulletin in Chicago.
