John J. Morris Post 62

Bar Bingo in the Social Quarters & Bingo Hall.

Sundays from 1 pm to approx. 5 pm, AND Thursdays from 4 pm until approx. 8 pm.

You buy a Bingo card for $1 each (we provide the crayon). As our Master of Ceremonies calls out the numbers, you cross them off your card with our crayon. When you cross off all 5 spots, you win (or share) the prize after the winning numbers are confirmed. Every 5th game, there is a larger version (and larger payout…). There is almost always a jovial atmosphere. The game is supported each week by volunteers from the Auxiliary, Riders, SONs, or the Legion. On some days, a meal can also be purchased for a nominal fee. 

Due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases, Thursday Bingo (NOT Bar Bingo) has been discontinued, and Saturday Bingo has been suspended until further notice! This is due,in part, to social distancing requirements and the lack of volunteers.

We are looking for Bingo Callers.  The Bingo Caller is like the Master of Ceremonies of the Bingo game. Bingo callers have a certain je-ne-sais-quoi. Although their role is "simply" to collect bingo balls and call them out so that people can daub their numbers on their bingo cards/sheets, their personalities always shine through the cards whether they're proclaming "B-2" or revealing the ball "O-62" (for Post 62), you can tell straight away if they have a sense of humor and confidence. Come on and give it a try. Our Bingo Manager, Vern Fry, will train you.

And, speaking of Bingo Managers : Sometime in the near future, our current Bingo Manager is retiring after hearing his 500,000th "Bingo". This person manages and directs the activities of the bingo functions on Thursdays, Saturdays & Sundays. This includes approving jackpots and payouts and ensures that all appropriate forms are completed. Again, Vern Fry will train you.
