If you haven't attended a West End Girls Lunch Bunch meeting or our Bridge Group, then you're missing out on a real treat. It really is great to visit and chat with old WEHS friends again and to make new friends too! Please call or email me to be added to our notification list. Kaye Forrester - 205-824-5344 or kkbbarnes@gmail.com.

Bridge Group
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 that we 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-togethers.
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. Sandra Wood - 205-969-0042 or sandrawdaniels@gmail.com.
