Opinion Letters Proceeds from Bingo support our community

Just returned back after several weeks of warm weather. Glad to be home, but received news about my pet project I am involved in, namely the American Legion Post 108 Franklin Bingo.

I and several great guys volunteer every Friday night to keep Bingo going and now Bingo is hurting. Let me say that the Bingo money taken in supports many local community projects. Such as many thousands of dollars given to our school projects, adding special needs of children, boy and girl scouts, the wonderful Shriner’s hospital and support to all veterans locally in need, and last but not least, our servicemen here and overseas.

Please, I want to say thanks to all our wonderful people who support us weekly. Our members just voted to not allow smoking at our post home and rumor has it that people won’t come. The only people who will suffer will be the people who need help in our community. Again, to the Bingo players who support us, God bless you all.

If I offended any person or persons, tough. When you support us, you support our community. Please, come.

William Trapani — Franklin, N.C.
