For those with young kids or grands who love or once loved Barney, no doubt you’ve heard the song BINGO about three thousand times. Somebody must have won really big to latch a dog
with that moniker.
The game of bingo with its wild and crazy spinning drum is alive and well in Big Canoe. The ladies of Still Young at Heart (SYAH) play on the last Thursday of the month. This time of year,
the Wildcat Pavilion is the place where numbers are called. Ladies bring their smiles and beverage of choice for an hour or two of fun.
All SYAH members are invited to giggle and gab while vying for the most intriguing prizes.
Gretchen Hudock calls the numbers, and no, she can’t be bought. A lovely version of Vanna White posts critical info on the big board.
If you’d like to get in on this high-spirted action and are not yet a member of the 600 strong SYAH gals, all you have to do is check out the SYAH Facebook page and join up.
Not a Facebook follower? No worries. Shoot Sherry Evans an email at email@example.com and she’ll add your name to the roster. After that, check insidethegates.org regularly for updated
