On Thursday, August 4, the Post Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a Bingo Night at the Post Community Center. “We are very pleased with the support this event received from the community. We had 88 people playing Bingo and everyone seemed to be having a great time” said Harry Record, Chamber PR Director. “We were very happy to see several residents and staff members from Golden Plains involved in the games. We really appreciate their patronage.”
Prizes were awarded to each game winner as well as drawings for door prizes throughout the evening. All of the games prizes and door prizes were donated by sponsors for the event: Main Street Mercantile, Brady’s Package Store, McDonalds, Sonic, Caprock Heirloom, United Supermarket, JoAnn Stelzer, Higginbotham Brothers, Garza County Historical Museum, Patty Kirkpatrick, Fish & D’s, Allsups and Poka Lambro. “We can’t thank our sponsors enough” continued Record. “Their generosity helped make this a truly memorable evening. We also want to thank the Women’s Division for providing a great concession stand and Dusty Clary who brought it all together with his announcements and calling the Bingo games.”
At one time, Chamber Bingo was a weekly event in Post, but no plans are being made to bring it back on a regular basis. “It was lots of fun for one night and we really like being able to give the residents of Post something different to do. The Chamber brought the Harlem Ambassadors to town the last two years and that was a great family occasion. We hope to continue sponsoring these types of events a couple of times each year” said Record.
