To the Editor:

On behalf of the Putnam County Board of Realtors, I would like to thank everyone that attended our Bingo Event on Saturday, Nov. 9. This bingo was our biggest ever, with 258 players in attendance. We started off the night by giving away 58 $10 cash door prizes donated by our Realtor and affiliate members.

We profited over $7,000, making our scholarship fund the biggest winner of the night. Applications are now available online at www.pcfoundation.org/scholar_apps_forms.html. In May will be announcing the four Putnam County High School Scholarship winners for 2020.

I would especially like to thank our main Event Sponsors for the bingo: Abstract and Title Guaranty, Caliber Home Loans, Collins Evans Real Estate, Farm Credit Mid-America/Rural 1st, First Financial Bank, First National Bank, Myrona “My” Gilley, Carpenter Realtors, McCloud Electric, North Salem State Bank, Ruoff Home Mortgage and F.C. Tucker-Schneider Realty.

Thank you to our members who volunteered their time the day of the Bingo – Gina Carter, Samantha Cooper, Tyler Cox, My Gilley, Jennifer Hanks, Steve Jones, Elizabeth Kienzynski, Karen LaFoe, Sue McCune, Laura Monnett, Rolynn Ramirez, Jeff Rich, George Schneider, Suzy Schneider, Chris Skillern, Michelle Skillern and Cecil VanArsdale. We also appreciated the help of several 4-H members, as well as some South Putnam National Honor Society members that assisted that day, along with those members that came out to play. Special thanks to everyone that stayed after the event to help us clean up!

This event would not be possible without those that helped organize the event, setup tables, chairs and equipment before and after the event, plus those that volunteered their time, talents and resources. We greatly appreciate all those that donated door prizes and concession items as well.

Thank you for making our Scholarships to Putnam County High School Seniors possible.
