Fun at Chess is a social, recreational program that provides fun for those who want to learn and play the game at a relaxed pace and comfortable level. It will also benefit experienced players who want to advance their skills.

The first offering of chess began on January 18th and will end on March 8th. The program will continue with a second offering of eight sessions beginning March 15th and ending on May 10th. Sessions are held on consecutive Thursdays from 10 am to 12 noon, except for Thursday, April 5th.  Attendance at all sessions is encouraged but an occasional missed session will not significantly hinder participants.

Chess sets are supplied by the JCCV for use in the program.

Charles Bonder will again lead the sessions.

Fee for the 8 sessions is $25 for JCCV members, $35 for non-members.

Advanced registration for the 8 sessions is required.

JCCV FILM NIGHT on Monday, March 12th at 7:00 pm


2006 (87 minutes); Narrated by Linda Hunt

An inspiring and gripping film:
The story of how feelings became songs, songs became a national voice, and voice became action. A single nation…a million voices…the fall of an empire.
Imagine the scene in “Casablanca” in which the French patrons in Rick’s Cafe began singing “La Marsellaise”…and you’ve only begun to imagine the force of “The Singing Revolution”.
Truly an uplifting piece of cinema!

Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection, large screen & great sound!

Snacks and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.

Always a classic cartoon and newsreel prior to the feature!
