ALIDA - The Alida Rec. Board held their memorial Bingo fundraiser in memory of Lisette Dubuc on Oct. 2. Lisette was an amazing community member, and this commitment was seen every Monday at Alida’s weekly Bingo. She was always there to help and she is greatly missed.
People began to gather when doors were open at 6:30 p.m. Over 61 Bingo players began collecting their cards and other guests went on to collect tickets for the Chinese auction which boasted an excellent variety of prizes. There was also a silent auction table holding some unique prizes as well. Teresa Lemieux soon welcomed everyone to the event and began to call out Bingo numbers and I believe that she did a good job.
There were also a number of door prizes available. A beer garden was open, and following the bingo an evening lunch was available. The winners of the Chinese and silent auction tables were soon disclosed. The event raised $5,000-$6,000. The rec. board appreciates your great support in both attending this event and for all the donations.
