Cash prizes were given and each time a veteran won bingo the people sitting on both sides of him also received cash.

Everyone was treated to ice cream, cookies and coffee.

Twenty-nine veterans, coming from many different cities of the metropolitan area, joined in with bingo.

“It’s always a fun time for our veterans and everyone helping out” said Darlene Thell, past president of the Anoka Post 102 American Legion Auxiliary.
