Bingo Update

Dear Parents,  The end of the school year will be here before we know it. As demonstrated at the winter concert, we have a lot of parents who are in trained bingo positions who will no longer be around after graduation. We need to start training parents now so that they will be confident and ready to take over at the end of May.

Need #1: Paper Supervisors and Paper Assistants. The Paper Supervisor and Paper Assistant work as a team. Typically, each team has a designated week of the month. For example, Lisa Wright and I usually work the second Saturday of the month. The schedule is flexible and people are always willing to trade. You are committing to work one Saturday a month. We will only have 3 people at the end of May. There are 8 positions. We need 5 more parents.

Job Descriptions: sells bingo games (paper and computer) to customers. Starts-up computers, runs reports, shuts-down computers. Needs to be comfortable working with the public. At the end of the bingo session, must reconcile paperwork and compile bank deposit.

Need #2: Bingo Caller. You are committing to one Saturday a month. At the end of May, we will have one person. We need 3 more parents.

Job Description: Lead the customers through the 21 games of bingo. Will also run pulltab games in tandem with regular bingo games. (All of this is explained during training.) If needed, prior to the games starting, help behind the Paper-side desk. Must be comfortable working with the public. Callers work-out their schedule amongst themselves. (Once a month, year-round.)

The band program needs your help. Financially we are stable but it is imperative that we keep our bingo program strong and fully staffed so we can stay financially healthy. If you have questions, please contact me via email or phone. I look forward to hearing from you.
