|New season of 50 Plus Bingo begins Jan. 11|
A new season of themed bingo games is being kicked off in mid-January by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District. In all, seven bingo sessions will be presented at five locations through late April.
All of this season's bingo sessions begin at 1:30 p.m. and will feature a dozen games of bingo, as well as food, prizes, and fun. Bingo prizes include gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses. The cost for each two-hour program is $5 per person for Johnson County residents or $6 for nonresidents. Advance registration is required.
