Sonya Hebert, resident activity director, said last week’s event was one of the largest and most successful BINGOs because of a massive turnout. Commander Allan Reynaud of LaPlace and Commander Ben Bogran of Metaire coordinated the effort.

Raising Cane’s General Manager Pete Clark supplied chicken, bread, iced tea and lemonade. BINGO was timed two days before Veterans Day.
