Thompson Valley Players member Bernice Randrup prepares signage for the groups ‘Big Bingo’ in the Fall Fair Hall this Friday.

Attention all Bingo players, new at the Fall Fair this year will be a Big Bingo on Friday Sept. 2, at 7 p.m. in the Fall Fair Hall.  The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and you must be 19 years of age to play. Organizers plan to have 20 regular games and five special games with extra prizes for people who dress up to the Fall Fair theme ‘Down on the Farm’.

Bingo will also be held during the Fair in the Hall on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

There will also be a small concession in the hall during that time so folks can stop by for a cool drink and play one of the drop-in Bingo.

Thompson Valley Players are the organizers of the Fair’s bingos this year, and they will be using the bingos as a fundraiser for the years’ upcoming projects.

The money will be used to run TV Players workshops in Barriere.

Starting in September there will be a technical workshop to better run equipment for lights and sound.  There will also be some voice clinics and directing workshops for students of all ages.

TV Players say the new Barriere Bandshell provides them with an opportunity to promote a lot more entertainment in the community, and they extend invitations to other communities to join with them in Barriere.

“We are now in the planning stages of Charlie Brown’s Christmas set to run in December, as well as two one act plays coming to the Bandshell in early May 2012,” said TV Player exec Bev Murphy.

Let’s keep the TV Players up and running by getting out your bingo daubers, and bringing your lucky charms to the Fair’s  Big Bingo and support our local theater!

You might win some prizes and extra cash while having a fun evening out.
