The YMCA thanks all who sponsored and
participated in the second annual "Cow Chip Bingo" fundraiser. This
year's event was a huge success. A big congratulations to Jessica Schaub, winner of the $700 bingo prize, and row sponsor Action Cash
Advance and Title Loan. An extra-special thank-you to the following
groups for their special appearances: Illinois State Police Officer
Nate Miller, who provided us with a look at the Illinois State
Police DUI vehicle; Logan County Deputy Mike Block; Humane Society
of Logan County; Dave Duvall with archery fun; and local farmer
Steve Irwin, who provided us with Flash the Cow. The event this year
was full of fun, with a magician, contests and games, food and more.
We are already looking forward to next year's event.
