Mah Jongg Provides a Way to Give Back at SaddleBrooke Ranch

Mah Jongg has woven its way into the hearts of SaddleBrooke Ranch (SBR) residents, creating a dynamic and engaging community around this beloved game. Whether you’re a seasoned player or a newcomer eager to learn, Mah Jongg at SBR offers a dynamic social experience. Also, playing Mah Jongg provides an opportunity to give back through the National Mah Jongg League (NMJL).

Weekly Gatherings and Lessons

Before COVID-19, Gail Latimer and Bonnie Goldman coordinated weekly Mahjong games and occasional lessons on Thursdays at La Hacienda Club. These gatherings provided a platform for residents to sharpen their skills and foster connections within the community. Beyond these organized sessions, numerous private groups host their own weekly games in the comfort of their homes, adding an extra layer of camaraderie to the Mahjong experience.

The Annual Card Tradition

At the heart of Mahjong at SaddleBrooke Ranch lies the tradition of the annual card provided by the NMJL. The card is a treasure trove, containing all the official hands for the year. This year marks the sixth consecutive year of coordinating a group order with the NMJL.

Charitable Giving through Gameplay

The NMJL contributes $5 and bonuses to for every card ordered. In the previous year, more than 250 participants, united as “SaddleBrooke Ranch Mah Jongg Players,” achieved a record-breaking sum of $1,350. The chosen recipient of their donation was the SaddleBrooke Community Outreach organization. A check was presented to President Denise Anthony, highlighting Mahjong’s positive impact.

Join the Mahjong Movement

Due to the overwhelming success of this project, residents and interested individuals will once again have the opportunity to participate in the upcoming year. For further details and to get involved, connect with Bonnie Goldman via email or phone.
