Bingo is The Name of The Game!
by William L. Bulla

"BINGO!" There's something exciting about the word being shouted out in a roomful of people! It's a word that every person in the room wants to call out each game! It's a word that causes other players to grumble, "I was only one number away!" Bingo is the name of the game! It's a word heard often in the Hagerstown area.
It's a word the North Hagerstown Lions Club is using to raise funds for its local community projects. In this case, it's called Basket Bingo. The prizes will be Longaberger baskets when the Club holds the event on Saturday, April 30, at the Elks Lodge on Robinwood Drive in Hagerstown. Doors open at 11 A.M., and a luncheon is served at noon. Bingo will follow the luncheon. Advance ticket price is $20.00; tickets at the door are $25.00. The ticket price includes the luncheon, game sheets, set of specials and a door prize ticket. For information and advance tickets call 301-791-1588, 717-597-1847 or 717-597-8316.
The North Hagerstown Lions Club is a group of men and women working together to meet the challenges of their community. They raise funds to help community youth projects, scholarships, senior programs, provide eye exams and glasses for the needy, and "Lazy-eye" exams for pre-school children among other projects.
