BINGO VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

If you have been following the receipts and the jackpot totals that are posted weekly in the bulletin you should know our Sunday night bingo is thriving. We increased our attendance but are in need of volunteers. This longstanding fund raiser has been bringing in record funds over the past several months. The fact is, however, we could increase the amount of funds generated with additional volunteers. Volunteering for Sunday night bingo is a great way for our school parents to accumulate their volunteer hours. Please consider donating one Sunday a month---- make new friends, while having some fun. We have a very loyal core group of people that manage this project that will welcome you with open arms.
