Mah Jongg brings people together who enjoy the game and would like an organized group to play with on a regular basis.  It’s a great way to meet people in a social setting. This is a friendly game, with no money exchange. An email is sent out each week in order to determine the availability of players. It’s important that members respond, as three players are needed to play. Players need an updated Mah Jongg card.

Meeting Times:  Friday afternoons at 1:00 p.m.

Time Commitment:  Regular attendance is not required.
