Last year I wrote on this blog about the Riderwood Mah Jongg Tournament and now, as another year has flown by, the Erickson Living Retirement Community is once again hosting its annual tournament. This is the eighth year that the community has held its tournament, which is a fundraiser for the community’s Benevolent Care Fund. If you happen to be in the Silver Spring, MD area, please support this wonderful event! And don’t forget to scroll down and see some photos from past tournaments.
