Mah-Jongg: In the Spotlight

Mah-Jongg
by Bette Fraga

Tuesday afternoons at 1:00pm find a great group of people playing and enjoying a few hours of American Mah-Jongg. Most of the players started playing the game in the Mah-Jongg classes held here at the Senior Center. Others knew how to play before they came and all have assimilated into a group where the challenge and the fun is new and fresh each week. As one of the Mah-Jongg players said, ” Where else can I go and have so much fun for only 50 cents?” Helen, who learned to play in a class here, said her only regret was that she didn’t learn to play before she was eighty-four years old! Other ladies have said thank you for not only adding a new experience but also more fun to their lives. A new class starts March 18th and again April 29th and all are welcome to come and learn; no experience is necessary. Men, you are also welcome and we have two who play regularly now. For something fun, challenging and different, come and take the class or join the group.

Every Tuesday 1pm Conference Room

Investment Discussion Group Meets April 15

Greetings,

Our next meeting will be on the 15th of April.  I received 5 or 6 responses regarding our last meeting when  we had a guest speaker, and the majority was favorable to guest speakers.  I did not receive any volunteers to present their ideas on investing so I set up another guest speaker.

Dorothy had sent me a newspaper clip regarding a speaker that appeared at the Rossmoor facility. Our guest speaker for this month will be David Vomund.  He is a top-rated market timer, and financial planner,  and his focus is on Exchange Traded Funds.  His portfolio has an exceptional five-year track record of ETF trading.  Mr. Vomund has given presentations throughout California and he has been published in many financial magazines and newspapers.  He has a degree in economics from UC Davis and a masters degree in finance from California State University East Bay.

We hope to see all of you at this exciting presentation.  Remember we have coffee and cookies and we ask for a one dollar donation to support our Senior Center.

Best Regards, Wayne Slater.
