Unit 201 -
Life Master Party for Don and Janis Williams
February 20, 2016

Thanks to Linda Briggs and Dr. Bharathi for many of the photos!


Don Williams began playing duplicate bridge about eight years ago at the suggestion of a co-worker.  He eventually talked his wife, Janis Williams, into the game.  Playing together they achieved Life Master status by earning the last of their required 25 gold points at the 2015 Beaumont Gusher Regional. 

Don Moss told a little about their journey and noted that he and wife Juinez were paired with Don and Janis for their 1st gold point and their 25th gold point and have enjoyed the special friendship that began at the bridge table in Beaumont.

Hosts and Hostesses with the Honorees
Don Moss, Linda Briggs, E. W. Sweeney, Lynda Jones, Susan Gore, Flo Ferguson, Juinez Moss, Kimberly Goodson, Fred Rice, Pat Bell, and Jerry Gore with Janis and Don

The studio was transformed into a Mardi Gras party.  The good times rolled!

Enjoying the Party
In a very poignant behind-the-scenes moment, Kelley Williams (Don and Janis's daughter-in-law) introduced herself to Dr. Bharathi as one of the many preemies whose life he saved.
The Program
Don Moss introduced Don and Janis. Don recognized members of their family. Janis told how she was able to tell Don to "suck it up" on occasion -- words said to her while hiking rim-to-rim in the Grand Canyon!
