BEAT ALZHEIMERS … HUMANIZE THE ACBL
So saith Rodney Walker, a self-described “old man” who recently returned to ACBL
after over 40 years’ absence. Rodney sent us an article called Strange and Funny Things Happened on My Way to the Bridge Exchange.
He’s passionate about a volunteer activity he’s launched for himself at On Top of the World, a retirement complex in Clearwater, which he calls the Bridge Exchange. Rodney is sure he has the solution to a problem voiced by CEO Jay Baum in one of his columns in the ACBL Bulletin last year--and at the same time, a solution to the problem of countless retirees who may not be getting all the mental exercise they can. Until they visit Rodney’s Bridge Exchange! Rodney has gotten some other Clearwater ACBL members interested in his quest to teach a whole new crop of beginners how to keep their minds working by playing bridge. Rodney would love to get us all (yes, ALL of us) volunteering to teach beginning or returning bridge players.
