What a fantastic fundraiser and FUN evening at the Bedford Royal Canadian Legion playing Bingo!!  I am not what you would call a professional Bingo player; in fact, it's been a number of years since I played so I was very grateful that there were many ScotianAires and their family and friends in attendance, including Joanie's sister, Cathy, sitting at our table who was helpful and kind to those of us who were scrambling to figure out what was happening!  Of course, by the end of the evening, we were all pros!

I want to thank Joyce PItcher, President of the Bedford Legion for organizing this event for us.  The Legion offers three Bingo nights a year to not-for-profit groups and we were fortunate to be one of the groups this year.  They have a remarkable team of volunteers that were extremely helpful and kind to us, and gave a great introduction and shout out to the ScotianAires during the evening. 

They also presented us with a cheque for $1,400 at the end of the evening which were the net proceeds from that evening's Bingo.  A special shout-out to June, one of the volunteers and a former co-worker of Norma.

Thank you to a whole table of Valley Voices sisters who came to play Bingo and support us and their fellow chorus member Tanya.

While there weren't any big Bingo winners in our group last night, the ScotianAires won big as we were able to spend an evening together, having fun while raising money for our chorus. 

Thank you as always to everyone who is able to support our on-going fundraising activities.  Thank you for coming and bringing your family and friends!  I hope we can do it again.

I've included a couple of photos here but you can see more here in Dropbox.  You might recognize a few past members (hint, hint - Kim M, Shelagh...) and many friends of the ScotianAires - thank you for always supporting us!!
