For all the newcomers to Petawawa and the area, we invite you to come to our Bingo that is held every Sunday night at the Civic Centre in Petawawa. Bingo starts at 7 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., early bird games start at 6:30 and regular games start at 7 p.m.

Oh by the way our 52 special is getting up there again, it was up to $1,800 at our Bingo Sunday, Feb. 25 and will be $1,900 on Mar. 4. If it still does not go it, will be $2,000 on Mar. 11 and at that time, the bingo caller will say the 52 special will go tonight in 75 numbers. Remember when you support the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club’s Bingo, you are helping us support those in our area who need help.

Some of our Civitan members will be selling raffle tickets on three paintings. They are painted by local artists. Tickets are $2 each or three for $5. The proceeds from the raffle will go towards helping make the Civitan playground more accessible so everyone can enjoy time at the playground. Three tickets will be picked and each winner will receive one of the three paintings. The draw will take place on Apr. 1 at the Petawawa Civic Centre during the Sunday night Civitan bingo. Our sellers will have a poster so you can see what the paintings look like. If you would like more information about this draw, you may call Civitan Marie Arnold at 613-687-8463 or see her at the Petawawa Civitan Bingo Sunday night.

We are happy to say two new members have joined our great club. They are Civitan Jo Austin and Civitan Tracy McCumber. Oh by the way, I am hoping to get about 10 more. Now if you live in Chalk River or Deep River and would like to join The Greater Petawawa Civitan Club, we would welcome you. If you would like to have a Civitan Club in your own area, I would be happy to help you form your own. If you would like more information about Civitan and what we do, myself and our president and other members would be happy give you all the information you need.

I hope to see you all at our next Sunday night Bingo. Bring a friend with you and enjoy a night of Bingo and fun.

That’s all for now - God Bless and Be Happy.

Thought for the week: Yesterday is the past. Today is the present, do your best today for tomorrow may never come.
