Hand and Foot
Time: Mondays 12:30 pm
Cost: Free members
Location: Game Room
Description: It might not sound like a card game, but Hand and Foot is just that. Related to Canasta, it is a North American game variation where each player is dealt two sets of cards using one as the “hand” and one as the “foot. There are numerous variations of the game and no “standard” rules. You can either play as individuals or as teams. The most common version of the game is played with four players in partnerships; it can also be played by six people in two teams of three or by any number of individuals. The following rules are for our “favorite” way to play with four people, two teams of two. To play you’ll need four to six full decks of 52 cards, including the jokers – Rules vary from one to two decks per player, or one more than the number of players). The aim is to get rid of cards from your hand (11 cards), and then from your foot (11 cards), by melding them. A meld is a set of three to seven cards of equal rank placed face up on the table. The play ends when one of the partners “goes out”. In order to go out, your partnership must: Have at completed at least two Red Piles and two Black Piles. Your partner must have picked up their foot and played at least part of a turn from it. You must ask your partners permission to go out. If your partner agrees you must meld all of your remaining cards, or meld all but one of your remaining cards and discard your last card. If your partner says “no” you cannot go out. You do not have to discard to go out, all possible cards can be melded to complete the game. If you like Hand and Foot, Canasta, or card games in general and you think you might be interested in play, the group was meeting on Mondays starting at 12:30 pm in the Game Room.

A New Way To Help Out - Through Amazon
By: Mike Sylva
A new program has been created through Amazon, the online e-commerce business. AmazonSmile is a program where Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organizations selected by it’s customers.
We were recently informed by Amazon that several of their customers had selected to support the Highland District Council On Aging (i.e. the Highland Senior Center). To support the center, instead of going to www.amazon.com, shop at AmazonSmile (http://smile.amazon.com) where you can buy the exact same things you would at their normal site, and the same prices. We did check it out and it’s legit. So continue to shop at Amazon and help out your Senior Center at the same time.
