    The Senior Center has kept plugging along. We missed a couple of days for deep snow, but it looks like we’re over the worst of it now. When there are enough players, we have Bingo on Thursdays at 12:30. There have been enough players every Saturday at 2:00, and Bingo is played then. Anyone who wishes to come play with us either time is welcome. Cards are $1 each and the money is paid out to the winnners.
