Did someone say it was hot out for two days? Well now the cold is back and once again you need a warm sweater when outside. Now for some news from the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club. I hear that the bingo is doing great and we had a few new Bingo players out last Sunday night. The 52 special is getting up there once again. You know that it can go at any time.

By the way, if you come to our Bingo, why not bring a friend with you or someone that just moved to Petawawa? If you live on the Southside in the RHUs you can walk to the Bingo. We are at the Civic Centre building just by that big playground.

For all you new people who have just moved to Petawawa, our Civitan Bingo is held every Sunday night. The doors open at 5:30 p.m., the early bird starts at 6:30 p.m. and regular games start at 7 p.m. If you are not sure how to play our bingo games, we tell you at the beginning of each game and our helpers will also help you out. If, for some reason, you need someone to play a game for you, our helpers will do that, too. You are not expected to tip the bingo workers. We are all volunteers and a thank you is just fine.

Well, I hope to see you all at the Bingo this Sunday night and bring a friend.

That is all for now God Bless.

Thought for the week: It’s a fact Volunteers live longer.

Laughter is the Best Medicine: A neighbour’s granddaughter came home from Sunday school quite excited. “I learned God’s name today,” she said. “Is that so?” her mother replied. “And what is it?” “Harold,” the girl said. “We learned, it in a prayer “Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Harold be Thy name.”
