Car Bingo was a huge hit on Jan. 5 at Davie Senior Services on Meroney Street in Mocksville.

Senior Services provided a small snack and bottle of water upon check-in for the event plus a disposable set of five bingo cards. The bingo game was called over the car radio by director, Kim Shuskey, and when an individual had bingo, they honked the horn and the prize cart came to their car for them to choose a prize.

Car Bingo is a safe, social distanced approved activity for anyone 55 and older to participate, Shuskey said. Participants played 15 rounds of bingo with three winners per card.

“If you love a good chance to play bingo, Senior Services will hold bingo the first Tuesday of every other month,” she said.

The next Car Bingo will be on March 2 at 2 p.m. Sponsor will be LeeAnna Lott from Local Government Federal Credit Union, who will also call the game.

“Senior Services graciously thanks them for being a sponsor,” Shuskey said.

This event is open to anyone 55 and older, but is limited to 30 cars. Call Senior Services at 336-753-6230. Potential sponsors may also call.
