    For the past four years the BHI Foundation’s golf and bridge tournaments have been held as a

    combined event. While a good time was had by all, for 2016 we have elected to host two separate

    events. This decision was made due to the increasing number of participants, as well as the diverse

    needs of both groups.

    Bridge & Euchre Tournament

    The fifth annual BHI Foundation Bridge & Euchre Tournament is Monday, October 3rd at the Golf

    Club of Indiana. Registration forms will be mailed during the first week of September. Bridge filled

    up quickly last year, so I urge you to register early. Bridge will be played in the Cardinal Room

    which is fully handicapped accessible, including the restroom, and Euchre will be played in the

    Club House; the cost is $25 and includes lunch, desert, and prizes. Those not interested in cards

    are also welcome. Golf cart tours of the course will be available.

    Proceeds from this event go to support the BHI Foundation Good Neighbor Fund, and the Employ-

    ee Scholarship Fund.

    The Health Center would appreciate you!

    Many areas and activities to choose from.

    For more information call Abby Hurt in

    Activities, ext. 2138 or email,

    How about a nice fall trip with colored foliage, super fellowship together with

    lots of fun, and experience some amazing sites and some history with special ef-

    fects in the theaters and displays? Lincoln’s Presidential Library, National His-

    torical Site, his tomb, and the Old State Capitol Building in Springfield. Then

    in Moline visit the John Deere Pavilion - billed to be for ALL ages and not a

    lot of walking. At the Pavilion you see past, present and future construction and

    farm equipment. Then the John Deere Headquarters building is said to be a

    “gem” in itself, reviewed as a “must see” whether or not you have an interest in farm equipment.

    Included is a dinner theater playing the “Million Dollar Quartet Show.” Finally on our way home

    we stop in Peoria to see the Caterpillar World Headquarters and the Visitors Center.

    A Village Voyagers’ trip not to be missed!! September 20-22. One person per room, $645;

    Two per room, $485; Three people per room, $445.
