British Club Events

The British Club at the Persian Room

Twink Gates, British Club Publicity

It was the 17th of August and lovely monsoon weather when a small, cozy group of seven British Club members ventured forth, gathering together, and enjoying a delicious luncheon at the tastefully decorated Persian Room right here in Tucson, on Thornydale Road, as always, enjoying the camaraderie of being together once more and listing to latest events in each other’s lives! Everyone thanked Ethel Willmot for organizing this very different and fun event.

The British Club has resumed their games afternoons every second and fourth Friday of the month. They will have a social event in the bar area at the SaddleBrooke clubhouse, which includes the following activities: Canasta, Mexican Train, and maybe bridge from 1 p.m. until around 4 p.m. This is followed by a social hour and a bar meal.
