Wednesday night bingo on Nov. 21 turned out to be a very exciting evening.

We were super busy as we had over 70 people in attendance and then the greatest surprise of all is when we had a winner of the progressive jackpot.

Congratulations go out to our own local Moraine Upson grand prize winner of $2,550.

The bingo players did a very good job filling the Christmas Hamper Boxes and there are only a couple of weeks left to go.

All players had agreed it would be nice to meet or beat the amount we collected last year.

Everyone is invited to come to our Christmas Turkey Bingo on Dec. 12, there will be door prizes, a complimentary box of chocolates for each player, and a guarantee for a super great time!

The bingo then will be shut down till approximately Jan. 16. Hopefully, we will miss most of the really cold icy weather. I call this my winter holidays and even though I dislike winter I look forward to my time off!


The last crib tournament held on Nov. 24 was the very best one apparently!

Not sure if it was because of the super great advertising, the superb light lunch or the promise of a great time, the event was thoroughly enjoyed by all 35 people in attendance.


There are a few events scheduled that you may like to take in – The Coffeehouse Music Session on Dec. 7, the paint night at the RB Cafe and Pub on Dec. 8 and the spaghetti dinner/silent auction and Christmas Concert for the elementary school on Dec. 14.

Since I am not sure if I will write again this month or not I would like to extend my greetings to all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, safe travels all.

PS for a really impressive Christmas Light display head up Timothy Lake Rd and check out the one at the Herl residence.
