Chapter News



In 1989, Paula Carter, Marion Thompson, Dolores Carr and Candie Simmons met at the home of bridge master Alice Adams. All were interested in improving their bridge game. The club grew and member Karen Rodman named our group, The Bella Donna’s. On one of June Turner’s (Boston Chapter of The Holidays) visits to Cincinnati in 1995, she told us about The Holidays, Incorporated. We were very interested in this national social and community service bridge organization. The Boston Holidays contacted the Chicago Holidays to meet with the Cincinnati Bella Donna bridge group. The Chicago Holidays (Doris Zollar) became the sponsors for the Bella Donna bridge group to become the Cincinnati Chapter of The Holidays, Incorporated on May 18, 1996.

We cherish the memory of our “Grand Slammers” Phyllis McAdoo, Naomi Spicer and Rita Parker.
