Games & Cards
The Venice Friendship Center is a hotbed of activity for card sharks and game players of all kinds. It’s a great way to meet new people, and one of the keys to keeping aging brains engaged and stimulated.
Let the Games Begin!
The Friendship Centers in Sarasota County host a wide array of games, from bingo and bridge to canasta, mahjong (including lessons) and pinochle. And depending on the time of year, we also offer chess and euchre – all games guaranteed to help seniors live a mentally active life and enjoy time with friends. Bingo doesn’t take too much brainpower, but it’s a very social activity; devotees often gather in the morning and stick around to enjoy lunch together, followed by music and dancing.
