Castor Elks bingo saw one lucky $400 winner

Next bingo will be held Dec. 27 at 7 p.m.

There was a good turnout on Wednesday, Dec 13 at the Castor Elks bingo. Around 30 people made it out to the Castor Golden Circle for the biweekly bingo. The jackpot for the Lucky 7 bingo was getting high, and to the delight of those in attendance, over $400 was won by one of our regular bingo attendees.

The ladies who run the concession held a draw for a beautiful Christmas wreath and a set of candles with a sleigh holder, all of which were donated for the draw. Georgina Fitzpatrick won the candles and Evelyn Falkenberg won the wreath. It was also announced that concession proceeds for 2017 would be donated between the Castor Arena for renovations and the Castor Museum. The next bingo will be held on Wed. Dec. 27 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Everyone 18 and older are welcome.

On Sunday evening, Dec 17, the Castor Community Choir performed their Christmas Cantata at the Castor Evangelical Missionary Church. The crowd was entertained by the 20-voice choir, pianist Betty Spady and narrator Roger Spady, all under the direction of the conductor Steve Penner.

There is still time to get your tickets for the New Year’s Eve arena fundraiser with the Dueling Pianos. This exciting night out includes a fun casino, dinner, and Dueling Pianos at the Castor Community Hall. Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased by calling the Recreation Office at 403-882-3225 or stopping by the Town Office.

I hope that everyone has gotten their shopping and wrapping done. Wishing all the readers a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

I will not be writing an article for the Dec 28 paper, so please send me all your Christmas and New Year’s happenings to be reported in the New Year.
