The theme of this year’s event is “Bedside Bingo.” Friendship quilter Lynne Kampe explained that all of the bingo prizes will be bed-sized quilts. The smallest quilt to be awarded is 50-by-70 inches.

Admission is $15 in advance, or $18 at the door, and includes 24 regular bingos, in addition to specials, a raffle quilt and raffle baskets.

Food and refreshments will be sold by the members of the lodge. The quilters will hold a “to go” sale of baked goods.

No one under the age of 18 will be admitted.
