REGULAR BINGO RETURNS EVERY FRIDAY INDOORS

Doors Open at 4:30pm and BINGO Starts at 6:45pm

If you are able to volunteer, we would love to have your help; we will be putting in place additional safety precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID to include Physical barriers (Plexiglas) and we will be requiring the wearing of masks for all Workers and Bingo customer, and will also be sanitizing the post before each Bingo session.

See Club Room tab for updated hours of operation!
