February was a busy month with very exciting chess sessions at Annandale Village, Bethesda Senior Center and Delmar gardens. The residents are now comfortable with the game and really look forward to these sessions, which greatly motivates the chess for a cause team. Rev Leonard is moving out of Atlanta and it was hard to say good bye to him.

The Chess for a Cause team was very fortunate to get engaged with 91 year old chess expert, Rev. Dick Leonard, who started teaching chess at Delmar Gardens, Lawrenceville, GA. The team will now work with Rev. Leonard every Sunday afternoon in engaging the residents in the mind expanding game.
