Print your Bingo Cards ahead of time (and use as many as you want!) https://letsplaybingo.io/generator. If your printer isn’t working, just generate a card and draw it on a piece of paper! Make sure you have bingo “markers” (like cheerios, torn up scraps of paper, or game pieces – anything that fits!) The following Saturday, there will be Drive Through Prize Pick Up on January 30 from 10-11am at the FPC front entrance.
