out moves: portraits of Harry Lyman and Harold Dondis
who enrich the Boylston Chess Club for decades, both 
with their participation in chess events, teaching and
organizing chess and donating their time and money to
make the BCC one of the most wonderful chess clubs in
the USA.
Kids take a break from the challenges
of tournament chess.
A PLACE FOR KIDS TO PLAY CHESS!
