This is where seniors gather here in Concordia. This building was totally renovated by themselves many years ago. Retired painters, retired bricklayers, retired balcksmiths, retired electricians and plumbers all worked for the same goal: the creation of a place to gather, play cards, chat, play lawn bowling. And they made it!
My neighbor, an 80 year odl lady, dresses up on each Sunday to go to play tombola (bingo) there with other ladies; I just saw her going out: a black skirt, a red blouse, pearl errings and a pretty necklace, her purse under one arm and her walking stick in the other ... later I'll ask her how it went!
