Chess club so popular new sets are needed

The chess club at Vic West Elementary is seeking chess set donations to keep up with the success of the club. Since the fall, students have been gathering in Ms. Brown's classroom after school on Mondays to play round-robin style. Some students came to chess club never having played before but, through the guidance of parent and grandparent volunteers, students have become dedicated to developing their skills in the game. Word is out that chess club is fun and attendance has grown steadily in response. Some glass chess sets in the club have begun to break, so donations of sets with wooden or plastic pieces are preferred.

Donations of chess sets can be dropped off at the school's main office, 750 Front Street.

Thank you from the chess club!
