Flash From the Past
Fifteen years ago, we met at the Morningside Inn for their delicious buffet in a beautiful setting.
Our speaker was Darryl Batson, Frederick County Library Director.
  A June D
ay Away trip was planned for Ladew Topiary House and Garden. 
We had not  yet learned about Hand, Knee and Foot ... and Samba, 
so the card club played Phase Ten.  Does anyone remember how to play this game?
