Winnie Jasper & Jerry Chamberlain, 183 Corliss Drive, Moraga 94556 (on the corner of Corliss and Crossbrook Drives at the stop sign).

There is on street parking, but we ask that you do not park in front of the house directly across the street from us (184 Corliss Drive) per request of the home owner, and please do not block any mail boxes, as we have been informed by the post office that they will refuse to deliver the mail. Please try to park on our side of the street and/or around the corner on Crossbrook Drive or in our driveway. We have a walkway from the driveway to the front of the house.

Wednesday is trash collection day, and each of the type containers is picked up by different trucks at different times of the day. Please leave plenty of room near any cans put out at the curb to guarantee access to the containers by the trucks.

Please help us be good neighbors!

To assist in your learning process Lamorinda Bridge Club will host a Wednesday afternoon
game that will feature a selection of hands from the Monday afternoon topic mixed in with other randomly dealt hands. This is important as often when one learns something new it may be
several bridge games before you encounter it at the bridge table, and you may not even recognize
it unless you practice it right away to understand it better.
Jerry will entertain special requests of topics and will reserve the right to alter the above schedule
accordingly. We will send out updates on the schedule in coming months to announce possible
changes.
