We will be hosting a "Back-To-School Bingo" event on Sunday, Aug. 14, at 6 p.m. Everyone in the Staunton area is invited to play Bingo for school supply prizes. We are stocking up, with the Clay Community Schools required supply lists as our guides, and hoping to help families who may be struggling to buy everything.
There is no charge and there will be free snacks and door prizes as well as the prizes for winning Bingo games.
Happy birthday to my great-niece Julie Dawson on July 31, and to my son, Kenneth Mitchell, on Aug. 1.
