[May 17, 2008]  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.
