Kim Grant & Rose Ferguson
At the FWDBA annual Christmas party Rose Ferguson was recognized as the 2017 recipient of the Mike and Annamarie Bonahoom Award for service to bridge in the Fort Wayne community. Rose has been an active member of the Fort Wayne bridge community for over 50 years. As a current Ruby Life Master, she has been a teacher of bridge for decades, a club director, and a member of the FWDBA Governing Board for many, many years where she served as secretary for over 20 years. Many current members of the Fort Wayne DBC got their start at duplicate bridge in one of Rose's classes. She and her most frequent partner, husband Don, were owners and managers of the Swindell DBC for numerous years. She and Don still play weekly at the Bridge Center. The Fort Wayne bridge community owes much to Rose and wish her and Don continued success at the table. Thank you, Rose.
