Charity Bingo

Bingo is sponsored and run by the members of The Holy Name Society of St. Paulís.  The first official bingo game was held in The Father Rausch Hall in May 1959.  Leonard Sienko worked that game and can you believe that he is still doing it 46 years later, now thatís what you must call real dedication. Iím sure he would like to see some new faces helping out after all these years.

46 years later, the Wednesday Night Bingo is still providing a place of entertainment for many dedicated bingo players from the surrounding communities.

The money that is raised by bingo goes to help a variety of worthwhile causes. St. Paulís has seen many improvements throughout the years that were sponsored by the proceeds from Wednesday Night Bingo.
For more information Contact Paul Bartholomew at 637-5409.

Community Toy Drive

The toy drive is run by a group of volunteers who want to help make the Christmas Season a little brighter for the children of the community. The fund raiser is a major undertaking. The kick off date is Thanksgiving Weekend and ends on Christmas Day. Donations of toys and money come from the members of the community. The goal is to spread the holiday cheer to every child in the community. Requests come from all sources and are usually filled by the Tuesday prior to Christmas Day. And any request that comes in late are also filled, even if it is Christmas Morning. Volunteers for this important program are always welcome.
