Relax and Enjoy a Game of Dominos
Dominos is a game with a rich history, including being a favorite of kings and presidents.
The oldest known set was found in Tutankhamen’s tomb, a king of ancient Egypt in the 18th dynasty. Closer to home, President Lyndon B. Johnson was an avid dominos player with friends in Texas. At Proctor Place, talk to John Yeck. John and wife Millie moved into Proctor Place's senior living community in 2006.
Millie enjoyed dominos, so it seems to only make sense that after she passed away in 2011 John would continue to help organize the games that have been a tradition at Proctor Place for more than 15 years. Don’t let John hear you say you don't know how to play the game. He will be the first to tell you the best part of dominos is how easy it is to learn – and once you do, the fun is guaranteed!
