You can go to the drive-in to watch a movie and now, thanks to Snellville Parks and Recreation, Senior Center members can go to the drive-in to play Bingo.
From 1 to 3 p.m. Jan. 26, there will be a Bingo event at the softball field parking lot at T.W. Briscoe Park for Senior Center members. There players can pull up their vehicles and play Bingo from the confines of their car. Large cards will be held up with letters and numbers and when the player gets Bingo, they will honk their car horn to announce they have won. The event is limited to 15-20 cars. Cards will be distributed when player drive up and check-in. Call the park office at 770-985-3535 starting Jan. 4 to reserve a spot
It’s just the latest event SPR officials have come up with to keep Senior Center members entertained, yet safe in these days of Covid-19.
