Did I mention the Hungarian Goulash?  If you’re a grandma, a grandpa, or just miss your grandma’s cooking, join them each month at the First United Methodist Church.  All denominations welcomed, even Baptists like me...

Senior Bridge

Bridge players at the Sulphur Springs Senior Center are always looking for new teams to join in the fun. Currently a “substitute” from Winnsboro drives each week to complete a team.  The group is missing a 98 year-old player due to medical issues.  Men are welcome to join, but historically Men lack the commitment required to keep harmony among the other players.   Assemble a team of 4 or  just watch each Thursday at 12:30...
