Also, let's hear it for the Linglestown Elementary School PTO for raising $3,650 during their second annual Basket Bingo event held last month at Linglestown Fire Hall. The proceeds will be used to purchase playground equipment at the school. Deanna Games and her crew of volunteers did a great job organizing the event, obtaining sponsors and attracting a room full of bingo players.
