Yes, it's true. The Association of the Woodbury Fire Department is bringing Bingo back to Woodbury. Friday nights starting January 13th. Doors open at 5:30 with tickets sales beginning at 5:45pm. The first game starts at 6:45pm.
The Association is running Bingo to raise funds to buy back and restore it's very first motorized fire apparatus. They hope by bringing Bingo back it will help toward this project which is funded solely by fund raisers and/or donations. The Association hosted Bingo during the 100th anniversary to help with costs for that year. But, after about 10 years the Association voted to stop hosting the Friday night games.
They have been asked repeatedly by some of their regular players to please bring Bingo back. Well, they got their wish.
The State of CT has changed some of the regulations but, the Association has revamped their game to meet all the requirements and they hope to bring back the fun of Friday nights at the Firehouse Bingo.
