From Mr. Lewis:
Our EPG (Ellenvale Project Group) committee is busy preparing for the upcoming BINGO to be held on Thursday, February 28. Here are some of the ways you can help: Do you have or know of a business from which you can solicit prizes for the BINGO? The EPG can provide you with an office letter asking for the business’s support. Please contact the office if you would like a copy of this letter.
Please also let the office know if you would like to help put together the prize packages, usually a week before the bingo. As well, folks are needed to sell the bingo tickets at the door and give out the pre-purchased ones. We’ll also need someone to sell 50/50 tickets and a few folks to help with clean up.
Please let the office know if you can help in any way. The office will pass your name onto the EPG Committee. Thank you very much for your support
