The main reason was to raise money for our local hospital, but also to get together with friends, play bridge and have fun. As a result, a group of women play a set number of games from September to April and donate a small amount of money each time we play. Over the many years, we have donated money to Port Perry Hospital, which has helped to purchase many items for our facility. Our membership has dropped for several reasons but we are anxious to keep this bridge club going. Therefore we are always looking for new members. If you enjoy playing bridge and could manage to find a partner, that would be wonderful. For more information please call Gale Ballard at 905-985-7054 or Catherine Corden at 905-985-9412. We would be happy to hear from you. Catherine Corden Please send us your letters, maximum of 250 words. Be aware that we cannot publish negative letters about individuals or businesses.

Dear Editor Lynn Campbell’s article brought memories flooding back to me, of a particular era of the regatta – the sail boat races around the 1950s. As a member of the Port Perry Yacht Club I participated in the two races – The Trophy for first place and The Handicap Trophy based on a calculation of your two times in the two races. I won The Handicap Trophy in our sailboat, Tinker Bell. It is wonderful that the Beacon Marina has revived sailing and the Lake Scugog Regatta Association volunteers keep this unique community event going. It’s a variety of active and social events that put an energy into a community and build memories. Some people participate every year. Talk to Ted Griffen. He’s never missed a sailing race. He’ll be there this year. Ask him about the challenges and pleasures of sailing. It’s a health promoting sport, that’s kind to the environment and wind is free.
