“O-64.” Steve Bousman read the white plastic ball.

 Forty-nine men and women quietly dabbed different colors onto their cards.

 “Bingo,” shouted a dark-haired women from the back of the room. A few cheers and claps led everyone to tear off their used pages and get ready for the next round.

Every Tuesday is  bingo  night at the Redwood Ruritan Club , and  it doesn’t just offer fellowship in the way of old-fashioned fun, but the profits are given right back to the community.

When asked about this, Bousman  said, “It goes back into the club, but it goes out into scholarships, fundraisers, whatever. If anybody has a fire, we give $300 for clothes, automatically. We give to the schools and buy Christmas gifts for kids. We give out bags of food for the elderly and Hunters for the Hungry and Operation We Care.”

Typically lasting until 10 p.m., there are  18 different  bingo games, including, Crazy T, Inside Square and Letter X.

For anyone feeling really lucky, instant win tickets are also sold for   $1.
