The social wellness of our seniors is a pretty important piece at Sugar River Senior Center. We offer Hoss & Pepper, Canasta, Euchre, Bunco, Movie Day, Travel Time, Congregate Meals, Trips, Quilters Group and Craft Hour. Scroll down to sign up today!
Hoss & Pepper
The card game Hoss & Pepper is a very close relative of Euchre but adds a 25th card to play—the Joker, which is always the highest trump card. Otherwise, the gameplay is very similar to standard Euchre.
Euchre is a trick-taking card game commonly played in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Great Britain, and the United States. It is played with a deck of 24, 28, or 32 standard playing cards. Normally there are four players, two on each team, although there are variations that range from two to nine players.
Come sit back, relax, and enjoy the movie! We have movie days the second and fourth Fridays of the month at 9:30. A variety of movies are shown, so there is something for everyone. Make it easy on yourself and enjoy congregate lunch after the movie!
Sugar River Senior Center offers a variety of trips. We will be going to the Fireside Theatre, A Brewer's Game, Mollie B Show, Casino Trips and more. We hope you will join us as we travel around the state!

Canasta is a card game of the rummy family of games believed to be a variant of 500 Rum. Although many variations exist for two, three, five or six players, it is most commonly played by four in two partnerships with two standard decks of cards. Players attempt to make melds of seven cards of the same rank and "go out" by playing all cards in their hand. It is "the most recent card game to have achieved worldwide status as a classic".
Bunco is a dice game generally played with twelve or more players, divided into groups of four, trying to score points while taking turns rolling three dice in a series of six rounds. A bunco is achieved when a person rolls three-of-a-kind and all three numbers match the round number.
Travel Time will be leaving for the summer, but check back in the fall for new adventures!
The last installment of Seeing Canada will be Monday, May 9th at 9:30. British Columbia's Okanagan, Northern Ontario, The Northwest Territories and Alberta to British Columbia by Rail.
