Big Bingo Rescheduled
Unfortunately we had to postpone the Big Bingo this past weekend for a couple reasons but mainly for safety. With the melting snow and temperatures projected to stay around or below freezing Saturday it was just best to reschedule.

We will have Big Bingo this Saturday, March 7th and 6:00 pm. everything will be the same just a week later. Tickets can still be purchased at South Davidson High School, Wilson Carter Supply or by calling Jamie Benton @336-247-2192.

Sorry for any inconvenience and thanks for your support and understanding.
