I can’t call your numbers, if you’re not here Wednesday nights playing bingo. Had a nice happy crowd last Wednesday. At break we have the drawings for the door prizes, the pie and the “pot of gold.” Coffee and soft drinks will be available and cookies and chips if you get the munchies. Come on over to Chillas Hall and join in the fun. The door opens at 6 p.m. and I start calling at 6:30 p.m. Enjoy!

Well, we sure did. There were many folks at the golf club banquet last Thursday. The main dining room at Crooked River Grill was packed. Our very own Nola Tolbert and her staff prepared a good buffet for us. Our fearless leader, Nealy Inlow, introduced all the committee chairmen and thanked them and all their helpers. He also introduced me and thanked me for being there to call the bingo. What an evening.!

Hope you can join us for lunch this afternoon. The door opens at 9 a.m. at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center and the lunch line forms at noon. Be watchin’ for ya! Your minimum donation of $4 will be collected at the desk.

You did mark your calendars for Saturday, March 22 I hope? You gals get looking for your grass skirt and coconut shell bra. The luau dance will start at 7 p.m. Bring your favorite snack to share and your beverage of choice to Chillas Hall. The hula will begin at 7 p.m. and your donation of $7 will be collected at the door.

The annual Wandering Star Quilt Show will be Friday and Saturday, March 28 and 29. There will be no coffee at the hall on Friday. See ya Monday! The quilts will be on display both days at Chillas Hall.

Isn’t it good to have Joyce Manzanares back with us for a while? She and her late husband Joe were snowbirds for many years. They supported all our activities and were there to pitch in and help.

Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and the housebound and remember our little prayer, God grant me patience and I want it right now..

Until next time, God bless America, our troops, and the poor, the homeless and the hungry.
