Thank You

Dear Editor,

Another year and another Bamberg County American Red Cross Bingo. Perhaps the best attended yet – thanks to the folks of Bamberg and Orangeburg counties. We have added Orangeburg because there were so many folks from that area that helped make the annual event a smashing success.

To mention all the volunteers would be impossible. They know who they are and we couldn’t do it without them. Chairman of the event was again Paul Sandifer – a fixture in that spot and doing a terrific job as usual. And, of course, there’s the Boss, Johnnie Hyatt, Chair of the Chapter and her side kick, VP Beth Pregnall, handling the money. Thank you guys and gals for doing your usual fantastic job.

Of course, what makes the whole thing happen are the contributors of prizes, the real core of attracting the crowds. Every prize had a value of $75.00 or more. That is, with the exception of the final Coverall. We call it the Thomas Rhoades Coverall because he and Chessie donate $100 – and it’s the star attraction of the evening.

Those donors making the evening a smashing success are too many to list (a special thank you to all of you).

We are grateful to have the support of two fine newspapers – the Advertizer-Herald and Times and Democrat. Thank you Minnie and Joyce.

Also, the Bamberg Job Corps, for not only lending us tables, but delivering and picking them up. Great job!

Last but not least, the City of Bamberg, for the use of the beautiful Civic Center. We’re lucky to have two guys like Mayor McCollum and Bruce Watson. Our heartfelt thanks!

Harvey Kling, Executive Director, Coordinator
The Bamberg County American Red Cross
