Our three tables of West End Girls Bridge began as
a spin off from the first Lunch Bunch held in 2002. We have played every month since. The amazing thing is
had little in common other than
having attended WEHS. We were from
several different classes and had not remained
close since high school. We have all been through quite a bit since 2002 and
have formed a bond beyond belief. We have
members from all over North Alabama that remain
faithful to our monthly get-to-gethers.
We meet in homes on the first Thursday of each month from 10am-1pm.
Each gal brings a salad. Contact me if
you are interested in playing or
substituting. 205-969-0042 or
