Book Club

Hakuro M. volunteered to host the January 20, 2021 meeting. If Covid restrictions are lifted, she will host in her house. Odds are, conditions will not be improved for multiple households to meet. She has agreed to host a Zoom meeting. Let’s hope she receives a positive response. Please see our directory for Hakuro’s address. We’ll meet / Zoom at 6:45, book discussion will start at 7:15. Please contact Hakuro If you wish to attend.

Hakuro chose “The Underground Railroad” by Colson Whitehead for her book. This is a wonderful book, chronicling a young slave’s adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. The Troy Library has some hard copies are available.

Janet G. will send an update and files to those on the book club list.  We hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season. 

We have volunteers to host the book club through August 2021. We have such a wonderful group of ladies who love recommending and reading interesting books!

  Ladies Bowling

We will be getting back to bowling in January, assuming the order is lifted banning leagues at bowling alleys.  We bowl on Thursday mornings at 9:30 at Escape on Square Lake Rd. in Troy.  We have five teams of three and one bye team for a total of 6 teams this year. If you are interested in subbing for us please contact Marie W. or Darcel C. We maintain social distance rules, wear masks and leave one lane between all teams when bowling. 

If interested please contact Marie W.

Mah Jongg

Hopefully, 2021 will bring us relief from the pandemic and the restrictions and isolations it has brought to us. While we’re waiting for the vaccine hierarchy to get around to us, we will continue to have mah jongg under mask restrictions. Our play dates in January will be Friday the 8th at 9:30 am and Friday the 22nd at 1 pm.

If you’d like to greet the new year by learning an old game, please plan to come. Tables will be set up in separate rooms, hand sanitizer available, and any treats will be prewrapped. Obviously, we cannot sit at the same table and maintain 6 foot distances but we will try to respect one another’s space. Updates to dates/times and reminders will be sent out to those on Jane’s email list.

Please e-mail Jane at mahjongg@troynewcomers.com for more information about mah jongg.
