Towel Bingo canceled in Brocton

BROCTON — The Ladies of the Brocton Preceptor Beta Epsilon Sorority have had to cancel their annual fundraiser, the St. Patrick’s Towel Bingo, this year due to the Covid Pandemic Guidelines. This is always held at the Brocton American Legion on a Sunday closest to St. Patrick’s Day.

The Ladies hope they might be able to hold this fund raiser later in the summer perhaps with a happy “Beach Bingo.” We are all disappointed to have to cancel this fun event this year but we cannot have a gathering of this size nor serve the awesome array of desserts as we have in the past.

We thank everyone who has supported us for all of these years and we are looking forward to holding this event in the future.
