A pool tournament at the Easthampton Council on Aging Enrichment Center drew 15 participants to the first-time event, held Aug. 12.

“I have been watching the pool players over the past five years develop increasing skill, friendships and a wonderful sense of friendly competition,” said Linda Talbot, the center’s director.

In the photo above, Anna Kingsbury, of Northampton, one of the three women who played, lines up a shot. At left, Jerry Lapointe sets the scene for Barbara Wagner, who was waiting to start. At right is Dave Brown. Lapointe, Wagner and Brown are all Easthampton residents.

Donald Bashista was the first-place winner, Albert Porto was second, and Herbert Glazier, third.
