The crowds came out Wednesday, Aug. 13, to the Cordes Lakes Community Association for its first Bingo session. The pre-game socializing was as important as the game to many people. Toby and Victor Jahns were two of many enjoying a bite before the game, with $1 hot dogs and cold drinks available.
Bernie Yorgensen, who ran Bingo in Mayer, was on hand to make sure things ran smoothly. Karon Trovillion was the official caller. Flo Lottes was the first winner, and also had the Hot Number for the evening. Ardis Jones and Ron Harrington shared a bingo win.
Norm Kozak, Annie Wales, Chris Schackelford, Anne-Marie McCoy and Michele Obezo answered questions for people and assisted in making sure everyone knew the rules.
