Here at the center on July 13, we had a big turn out for potluck bingo. There was so many dishes of food to choose from!! After our meal, we played bingo for an hour with lots of prizes won!

July 14th, Our BBBaseball team played against Van Buren here at the center. What a fun time everyone had. The Van Buren Whippets came to play and caught the Tigers taking a lil cat nap. In the 3rd inning of game 1,the score was 0 to 9, the tigers decided it was time to play ball in the 4th, but still ended the game with a 9 to 12 loss. Game 2, The Tigers dusted themselves off and played great the whole game. The score was 18 to 13 in the tigers favor. Sharon Potts, Mary Bohannan, Dwight Mantooth, Betty Ayers all made home runs. Dwight and Betty are the homerun champs of the game! Way to go Dwight and Betty!!!!!!
