Casino Royale was a wonderful night of gambling, eating, gambling, dancing, and more eating and gambling. Is there anything that is too much fun? Not at this party. We had late comers, the early to goers, and the close down the Club members.
Bingo has also had a phenomenal season from last year to our current bingo games and fabulous turnout. And the players are enjoying the Bingo “payoffs” and fun. The Thursday night menu has received high scores as well. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers at Bingo. Yell it out again “BINGO”.
