Bingo balls are spinning again in Luling, as the Luling Boutte Lions Club has reinstated weekly games.
Phyllis Breaux, member of Luling Boutte Lions Club and District Governor of the Southeast Division 8-S, said the group hasn’t been able to offer the games since March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The games will continue to be held in the newly-renovated VFW Hall, located at 140 Angus Drive in Luling, every Thursday and Friday. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and games start at 7:30 p.m.
After holding its bingo game fundraiser at the St. Charles Room Bingo Hall in Boutte more than 20 years, the Lions Club relocated to the VFW Hall earlier this year. The organization had to move after the previous location was sold to the United Way of St. Charles for a community college.
“We are part of Lions International, the largest service organization worldwide,” Breaux said. “All profits from the bingo games go toward the community and we also help support the Louisiana Eye Fund and the Lions camp for crippled children.”
Temperature checks, mask wearing and social distancing will all be a part of bingo reopening, Breaux said. There is a $15 minimum buy-in each night.
