The Morrin Community Hall was full of Bingo lovers hoping to get their hands on a free turkey last night and according to Morrin Hall Turkey Bingo Organizer, Melanie Nelson, the event has been going on for decades.
"We were talking last night and just from some of the oldest people there since it has been something the Morrin Community has been doing for a long time, theythought that it had been going on since the seventies," she explained.
About 150 people attended the night, and the organizers are still tallying up all the money.
"So, when you have this bingo, you sell your bingo cards at the door. We also have the olive balls, so the Christmas balls, and then, in the end, they just draw one number for that, and we also do Bonanza's," explained Nelson.
The Christmas balls could be purchased for $5 and were attached to the shirt of volunteer Bob Chambers. At the end of the night, they made a draw of all the balls purchased and the winner took home a turkey.
"We thank everybody for coming out and supporting us. Support was huge this year, and that is how we operate, through our community fundraisers," thanked Nelson.
