Games & Other Pastimes

Games and various other pastimes often fill spaces in the day for all ages from the most toddling of Sparks to the most tottering of Embers. Card games, board games, running games, thinking games, puzzles of various sorts, 4-Square, horseshoes, reading, Stunt Night, the Sales Table Auction, ping pong, and even tightrope walking are all represented on this page... and that's all only a small part of the fun and relaxation that you'll see here!

The original plans for the Assembly (which have hung in the Dole Wing for decades) included grass tennis courts on the back field. Here's a foursome playing sometime in the 1920's or 1930's. You may not be be able to tell from the picture at this size, but Route 302 going by just beyond the row of bushes and small trees on the other side of the tennis court is a dirt road!
