Winnie Fratkin won the Sheila Kleiman Congeniality Trophy at the May meeting. However, it was finally engraved and presented to her on Friday, August 8. Winnie is friendly and polite to to everyone at the table, including her huband, Barry. She enjoys baking treats for the players, and almost always brings a cake or some cookies to share. She is truly deserving of this honorable trophy, and Richmond is lucky to know such a wonderful lady.
The Congeniality Trophy has been a part of Richmond bridge since 1972. It was renamed the Sheila Kleiman Congeniality trophy in 2006, in honor of its 1992 recipient, the late Sheila Kleiman.
