The El Dorado Hills Senior Center’s weekly cribbage group decided to forego its annual Christmas gift exchange and collect gifts for the charitable organization Toys for Tots instead. “We don’t need anything,” said member Carl Backers of their decision.

They collected dozens of toys later picked up by El Dorado Hills Fire Department staff.

The group has been together for 11 years, but welcome new members. Players play nine games against nine opponents every Wednesday evening at 6:30 September through May with less formal play during summer. All adults, senior or not, are encouraged to drop in and play regardless of cribbage experience. The Moni Gilmore Senior Center is located at 990 Lassen Lane in El Dorado Hills.
