*Please note - the Dog Days of Summer Bingo on Aug. 14 will now take place at Roeland Park Community Center and not Mill Creek Activity Center as originally planned.
"Shark Week," and "Dog Days of Summer" are themes for bingo games being presented in August by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District. Social distancing and COVID-19 safe practices will be observed during these programs.
Both of these bingo sessions will feature a dozen games of bingo, as well as food, prizes, and fun. Bingo prizes include gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses. For Johnson County residents, the cost for each two-hour program is $5 per person in advance, or $6 on the day of the event. For nonresidents, the cost is $6 in advance, or $7 on the day of the event. Cost of admission covers food (or snacks) and staff time to administer the bingo program. No additional charge for bingo.
August 50 Plus Bingo programs being planned include: " Shark Week" (course ID 37336) on Aug. 5 at the Meadowbrook Park Clubhouse, 9101 Nall Ave., Prairie Village; and "Dog Days of Summer" (course ID 32100) on Aug. 14 the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood Dr., Roeland Park. Both programs begin at 1:30 p.m. on their respective dates.
