If you are interested in learning how to play, Buckham West is offering a series of four learning sessions from 10-11:30 a.m. Thursdays: April 21 and 28 and May 5 and 12. Class instructors will be Jacki Johnson, JoEllen Schulz, & Sandy Nelson. It is strongly recommended that participants plan to attend all four sessions in order to fully understand the game.

- Mah Jongg Socials take place every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. through Labor Day and Marathons take place during holidays, Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day, September 5, 2022 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Players meet in the game area of Bryant Park by the Carousel (Le Carrousel.)

I taught them all how to play. The group started with 3, within a year it is now up to 14! We meet on Fridays at 1 p.m. Depending on how many are planning to come determines where we meet. We take turns in our homes or if more than 12 are coming we meet in the chapel at our church. Obviously we do not play for money. We have outings once a month, on Tuesdays. We go out to lunch mostly or visit historical sites or shopping. We share joys, birthdays & help each other through burdens. It has been a wonderful way for me to get to know people.
