Time to shout Bingo!

GREENVILLE — Bingo fans will be covering up the free space in downtown Greenville Friday.

The Lions Club International of Greenville has a bingo game set for 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Landmark, 2920 Lee Street. Two, six-game sessions are planned for the evening. Cash prizes will be awarded to the winners.

All proceeds go to fund student scholarships.

Those wanting more information or wanting to reserve a table can call 903-413-0304.

Voters in Greenville approved allowing charitable organizations to conduct organized bingo games as fundraisers in the May 2011 municipal election.

Greenville is the only city in Hunt County to be legally able to conduct bingo games for charity, although the games are allowed in nearby communities such as Sulphur Springs, Paris, Garland and Gun Barrel City.
