In the midst of a pandemic, five friends gathered outdoors Wednesday, August 19, in Colton to play a giant, homemade game of Mah Jongg with social distancing and masks. The jumbo game, inspired by a photo from China, was played at a surprise birthday party for Kathy MacKay. Here, from left, are Carol Kissam, MacKay, and Janet Torres. Also in attendance were Sandy Steinberg and Elaine LaLone, the winner of the game. Photo submitted by Erika Kissam.
