ETHAN: Annual bingo event set
By Sue Tilberg
The Ethan Pride and Betterment Committee is sponsoring the annual Turkey Bingo. This event will be Thursday at the Ethan American Legion Hall. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and bingo begins at 7 p.m. Each bingo wins a turkey and bingo cards are $5. Participants are encouraged to bring a canned good to donate to the local food pantry. A free dessert or refreshment ticket will be given for each donation. There will also be a ham giveaway. Signups are at the local businesses in Ethan and you must be present to win.
The fifth-annual Team Mathis Benefit will be Nov. 29 at the Ethan Legion Hall. The pork loin meal will begin at 6:30 p.m. Bingo and poker will begin at 8 p.m., with signup for the poker tournament ending at 7:30 p.m. Drawings for raffle prizes will be held during the intermissions of the tournament and there will also be a silent auction. The Team Mathis committee will gladly accept donations of bingo or raffle prizes.
If you have any questions or donations, please call Mark Endres at 999-3807 or 227-4604. All profits will be used for annual scholarships in honor of Terry Mathis, former Ethan superintendent who died in 2009.
