Double blackout bingo

January 13th, 2021

Mary Giroux is 102, and a big fan of Bingo at Points West Living Slave Lake. Recently, Mary had two blackouts in a row. “Mary was so excited to win,” says Recreation Therapist, Bobbi-Jo Grover-Emes. “We have bingo on Tuesdays and Thursdays and it’s always followed with a snack and great music. Residents have been flocking to bingo recently and the gatherings have been excellent for morale. When the sun is shining in the window, prizes are being won, and coffee is flowing, you can’t beat it!”
