Everyone’s Going Bunko


For several months now the Overbrook Library has hosted Bunko (a social dice game) in the Community Room.    Several dozen persons have enjoyed each other’s company and playing the game.   The action takes place the third Tuesday of each month from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.



If you are interested in playing, call Jan Boggs (785665-7262 or 785-220-6920).   A $5.00 donation is suggested.   The next game takes place on January 20, 2015.
