Lake Mills’ L.D. Fargo Public Library welcomed U.S. Chess Federation chess master Dennis Doren last week. Doren, who has 50 years of experience participating in chess tournaments and who recently moved to the Lake Mills area, is interested in getting a regular chess club going. At the initial meeting, he offered chess instruction and tips, playing simultaneous games against all of the participants. After this organizational meeting, group members expressed interest in meeting regularly, perhaps once a month on Saturday mornings. Check the library calendar for upcoming meetings.
