Come and have fun at Saturday Night Bingo this Saturday.
Bingo games, open to all members of the public 18 years of age and over, are on the first and third Saturday of each month. Early Bird games begin at 5:30 p.m., and regular games start at 6 p.m. The games are at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center at 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd. There are 17 basic games, which last until 9:30 p.m. Refreshments, including coffee, tea and pastries, will be served to players.
Come for fun, companionship or even win some money. This is a fundraiser to pay for insurance, so there can be activities at the center. Volunteers are needed and appreciated. Volunteers are needed to assist with the Saturday evening bingo games once or twice a month for the following positions: set up, picking up doughnuts, check-in desk, and collecting, counting and balancing of the evening’s proceeds.
If you are interested in volunteering in any of these areas or have any questions, please contact John DeMasi at (530) 541-2773. You may also call the SLT Senior Center for information at (530) 542-6094.
