Mae celebrates birthday with mah-jongg
Each week Jewish Pavilion volunteers join with residents at Atria of Lake Forest to socialize and play mah-jongg. Mae Gitles says she enjoys maj and could play every day of the week. These dedicated volunteers have become friends with Mae while perfecting their game. They recently celebrated Mae’s 96th birthday along with their weekly game of mah-jongg. Without these volunteers, it is likely that Mae wouldn’t have a game of maj since many of the people living at area nursing facilities are not familiar with the game or no longer have the patience to play. If you are interested in getting involved with the Jewish Pavilion to volunteer and share your hobbies please contact the office at 407-678-9363.
