BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Join us for Bingo Night at The Compass School on Thursday, Jan. 31 from 6 – 8 p.m. Route 5 just south of Bellows Falls. Great for families and serious players alike, there will be cash payouts in all games, plus extra prizes including Mount Snow ski tickets as well as a 50/50 raffle. There will also be food, deserts, and beverages available. Come join the fun!
Compass School’s monthly bingo nights occur the last Thursday of each month, and will continue throughout the school year. The fundraising efforts support the school’s Global Connections program. Every year, Compass 11th graders participate together in an international trip to a Spanish speaking country. Compass is committed to ensuring every student can go on this trip, regardless of family income. With over 50% of Compass students eligible for free and reduced lunch, fundraising is essential to ensure everyone can take part in this life changing travel experience.
The general public is warmly invited to join in this event, with all bingo supplies available along with baked goods and refreshments for sale. Bingo cards will be sold for 50 cents per game, and cash prizes will be awarded for every game.
Bingo night revives the early days of the Compass building when it was an Elks Club hosting high stakes bingo for busloads of players coming up from Connecticut. A regular Thursday night bingo game continued in Bellows Falls for some years thereafter. The 11th graders are hoping Thursday night bingo will be a way to bring the wider community into the school for a fun, shared evening each month. The other dates for bingo are February 28, March 28, April 25 and May 30.
All proceeds of the evening will benefit the Compass junior class Global Connections trip. The Global Connections Program focuses on cultural immersion and international understanding. It is an integral part of the junior class curriculum, inspiring students to broaden their horizons as global citizens. The Global Connections Program began in 2003 and since then Compass has had over 160 participants travel to locations including the Mexico/Arizona border, India, Nicaragua, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Peru and Cuba.
