The Lions Club of Cambria meets at the Joslyn Center. Please see the Lions Club web site for more information.
Mah Jongg, originally a Chinese game, has found a happy home at the Joslyn Center. The American Mah Jongg League is the head organization that provides the playing card that is used by players in the U.S. and is revised every year. The tiles played with are embossed with bams (bamboo), cracks, dots, flowers, winds and jokers.
If you think that doing crossword puzzles or jig saw puzzles help keep your brain sharp, then come on down to the Joslyn and try Mah Jongg. It is a game of luck combined with strategy (which is so good for your brain.) We welcome experienced players and novices. We will provide lessons for you during game time - it's our pleasure to do so if you are willing to put in the time to learn. Plus, the socializing with other players and making new friends is well worth learning how to play.
We invite you to just pull up a chair and observe some games and join in when you are ready. We play from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Monday and Thursday and use a "purse" of $5.00 and ask for a $1.00 donation to the center each day. Please contact the office for more information or to talk to one of our members directly. Contact Person: Joy Lee (805) 975-5103

We are a group of novelists, poets, short story writers, memoirists, and
traveloguers. We are dedicated to supporting each other throughout the creative
writing process. Our goal is to tell stories — true stories that might get lost
and fictional stories that move us. Although we have many different styles and
interests, we are united in our love of language and power of imagination. We
meet each week to provide a supportive and collaborative environment for members to share their work.
