Cribbage Tournament

The 21st Annual Parker Senior Citizen Cribbage Tournament was held yesterday after school in the cafeteria. It was a big success! Former Parker math teacher Bob Ohlson started this tournament and ran it for 20 years. Upon his retirement, I took it on. Mr. Ohlson returned to play yesterday and helped me out a lot with hid sage advice. Sixteen Reading senior citizens came to Parker to compete for a trophy, to have fun, and mingle with the middle school kids. The kids were great! Besides the 17 kids playing (1 filled in for an absent senior) we had another 7 kids work as helpers, greeting the seniors at the door, serving refreshments, and assisting me with all the "stuff" that needs to get done. Ray and his senior partner Helena won and Mark Anthony and his senior partner Bob finished second. It was a wonderful afternoon for all and we are looking foward to next year's tournament!
