The club is preparing to host participants from fourteen senior citizen centers from Enterprise, Ozark, and Daleville to attend again this year. What started as a small-scale bingo event, with snacks and prizes, has blossomed into an event with nearly 400 feisty bingo-playing senior citizens. Participants enjoy a hot breakfast, snacks, 7 big bingo prizes such as last year’s Big TV prize, 4 special prizes, and 80 to 90 door prizes. Big bingo prizes are sponsored by the Fort Rucker Thrift Shop and door prizes are donated by local Wiregrass businesses. Leslie Edens, the event’s coordinator says “When the day is done, there will be 400 smiling faces and 800 cups of coffee served, made possible by the kindness of dozens of volunteers. It is a hectic, fun, and heartfelt morning for all.” Last year the event brought about 350 participants and the club anticipates about 400 this year. The dozens of volunteers from the club’s membership as well as community volunteers pour coffee, assist with bingo cards, and enjoy time with valuable members of senior community.
Seniors interested in attending can RSVP through the Senior Center Directors
