I am now selling Parrsboro Community Radio Bingo cards. If you have high speed service you can play online at home or if you wish you can come to the library on Thursday evenings to play. Bingo is from 6-7 p.m. The cards are $3 for a book of two cards for five games. This week the jackpot is $1,000 in 45 numbers and the looney ball is worth $3,150.
The Downshore Market and Coffee House is back for the 2010 season at the log building on Mills Road from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday mornings. Come and enjoy a social morning with new and old friends.
If you want to lose weight, TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) meets every Monday night at the Advocate Fire Hall at 7 p.m.
I also wanted to mention the gym equipment that is available at the log building. The cost is $1 to use the equipment, which consists of two tread mills, a universal weight machine, an eliptical machine and a stationary bike.
Well, that's it for this week. Have a great weekend and enjoy your family and friends!
