Hooks Resume BINGO Feb. 26

B ack by popular demand

Bingo will return to the village starting Feb. 26, officials with the Granville Hook & Ladder Fire Company said Monday.

“The biggest thing is we need fundraisers,” Hooks treasurer Dan Roberts said. “Heating oil costs have hit us this year.”

And members of the public have been asking for the return of their longtime fundraiser, so the fire department agreed. “We need fundraisers to help pay for equipment, but a lot of people have been asking for (bingo) to come back,” he said.

Roberts said the fire department has to renew its license to hold bingo quarterly so members are going to wait and see how the next few months go.

Bingo will be held at the firehouse every Saturday starting Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be available for purchase.

“It will be a progressive pot,” Roberts said, starting with $350 the first week. The department’s big fundraiser, the summer carnival, will return June 16, 17 and 18 with a parade before the final night of the carnival and fireworks to cap the festivities. Final details on the carnival are being wrapped up soon.

Roberts said the carnival is possible through the help and hard work of volunteers and department social members; those who would like to help can call the firehouse. 

Anyone with questions can call 642-2401 and leave a message.
