Unit 201 -
Marilyn Adams' Life Master Party
November 7, 2015

Thanks to Patsy Pierce and Linda Briggs for the photos!


Marilyn Adams with husband, Gilbert
Marilyn Adams began playing bridge as a child with her family.  She recalls her mom suggesting she forego her homework so she could be the family "fourth" in the evenings.  About six years ago Earl Johnson encouraged Marilyn to play at the studio.  She earned her Life Master rank on June 11, 2015 while playing with long-time mentor, Martha Sigler.  The Red, White, and Blue Election Celebration was enjoyed by 18 tables of players and friends.  Marilyn's family (husband and five children and families) joined her for lunch.

Dan and Jill Karnicki were honored guests.  Dan is pictured with Paul Keedy on the left; Jill is pictured with Earl Johnson on the right.
The studio was decorated in red, white, and blue to honor Marilyn.
Linda Briggs, Carolyn Worsham, Betty Poindexter, Connor Smith, E. W. Sweeney, Martha Sigler, and Phyllis Mann served as hosts.
Carolyn Worsham chaired the program. Marilyn thanked her family and guests. Dr. Bharathi shared his words and presented a gift to Dan Karnicki.
Dan accepted the gift in memory of his wife, Liz. Dan poses with his "two Marilyns." Tipton Golias shared the meaning of Marilyn's accomplishment with her family.
  The grandchildren enjoyed playing in the library.
