Keep Calm And Play Bingo
By Susan Manning
The Ashland High School Student Council is back at it raising money for the school.
“This is our 13th Annual Bingo Night,” said AHS teacher and student council advisor, Joshua Wiczer.
The event, which is being held Wednesday, April 26, at 6:30 PM, is usually a popular one with as many as 200 attending.
“We usually get about 200 people at this event, and it’s a great mix of ages — from elementary school kids to senior citizens. And we have a lot of participants who come every year!” said Wiczer.
All proceeds will go to the Ashland High School Student Council, who in turn will put the money back into the school.
“In recent years, we helped fund the new electronic sign in the front of the school, purchased banners for the lightpoles in the parking lot, purchased a propane grill for use by any high school group and we’re in the process of purchasing water bottle filling stations to replace two drinking fountains in the high school, as well as track uniforms for the Unified Track Team. We’ve also used some of our proceeds to help run school-wide events,” he said.
So why should people come?
“Bingo night is always a whole lot of fun, for participants of all ages! Participants will have the opportunity to win gift cards donated by local businesses and restaurants,” said the teacher.
