 May Event

Saturday, May 29, 2021



The Fraternal Order of Police, 3445 N. Dodge Blvd.

Time: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Our Event in lieu of a meeting will be our annual:


"Violet Bingo" 

* * * * * * *

WE WILL NEED EVERYONE TO BRING 1 OR MORE ITEMS FOR THE BINGO TABLE, LIKE YOU WOULD BRING FOR THE RAFFLE TABLE: These will be the items you will win and everyone wins!!! It can be plants, leaves, flower pots, bottle of wine, anything you think someone might like.


AS for FOOD:

Not sure we can or want to have a potluck yet and to be on the safe side if you want to eat bring your lunch while you play feel free to do so or we can all go out to eat after, the Depot is just a couple blocks away and food is not bad.


We also talked about just having dessert or something to munch on, it would have to be items that are in seperate packaging.

EXAMPLE:: if it were cookies they would have to be in a baggie that you just go and pick up and take back to your table.


We don't want to handle the spoon that everyone else has, etc.


cup cakes would work


or we don't have to have any food, but if you want to bring something feel free just follow expample from above.


Hope to see you all there, is always a fun time.


If you have any questions feel free to contact me.



Meetings are combined for now and 

in different location.
