Cribbage Memorial

Jerry Nordling MemorialThe Wednesday Night Card Players held a small memorial service for Jerry Nordling, Cribbage Committee Leader, who passed away on April 8th, after a brief illness. Jerry was instrumental in starting the cribbage class which led to the Cribbage Group. Cribbage started out with just a few players, and thanks to Jerry, we now have at least 12 locals, plus the snowbirds that join us each year. Jerry was a member of the Space Coast Peggers Club on Merritt Island. A memorial table was set up as a fitting tribute to Jerry which included a cribbage board…and cards which represent the best hand you can get in cribbage, a 29. Jerry was an excellent cribbage player, a great teacher, a wonderful friend & we will miss him. We hope to continue his legacy. “Rest in Peace Dear Friend”.

On March 28th the travel group went to Medieval Times in Kissimmee. Our gang enjoyed a movie on the bus going and coming, along with a grand dinner and show. As usual, Casey, our bus driver, got us back safe and sound. Keep posted for future trips.
