Director of Project HOP2E Bryan Smith shared that he approached the Taylor County Senior Citizens Center with the idea to bring this project to life.
“A lot of people on social media have been asking about bringing Bingo in Grafton,” commented Smith. “We saw this as an opportunity to raise funds for our food pantry, and a way to bring a fun game to Grafton.”
Assistant Activity Director Michael Thrush shared that he is happy that the senior center is a part of this project.
“I want our community to be great and have something new for people to do,” said Thrush. “I think this will be great for the seniors and the community in Grafton.”
The pair shared that starting in June, they are hoping to hold Bingo the second and fourth Fridays of each month.
