BINGO AGAIN….THIS TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY INVITED!
Just a friendly reminder for those that would either like to play BINGO again as well as those that want to invite their family or friends. We are very excited to bring you BINGO through zoom again, Tuesday, May 11th at 6:30 pm. We will be playing 6 games with prizes and was lucky enough to “book” our awesome caller, Karen Bloom! We are hoping you will want to invite your family and friends. If you already have your cards from last time, there is no charge to play again. The only charge is for those who are new (Friends and Family) and/or if you wanted or needed new cards.
It cost the same as last time: 3 cards for $10; 6 cards for $20.
Please let us know if you will be playing and if you are inviting your friends and family, how many cards you will be purchasing along with their e-mail address. This is so we can send everyone the zoom link to play. We shall deliver BINGO cards the same way except that we ask you to deliver the cards to your friends and family cards. All monies can be sent in advance (before May 6th) to Betsy Krentzman.
We can’t wait to play with you again!
OUR FIRST BINGO NIGHT WAS A SUCCESS….
This past winter, on a cold, snow-covered evening, 52 WWC members participated in WWC’s first Bingo via Zoom, in the comfort of their homes. Three games were played, 255 Bingo cards were purchased, and 5 members met the Bingo challenge.
Many players thought all members were winners by their participation in such a fun event. Very exciting was the $945 raised for the WWC to help meet the needs of the community. SAVE your Bingo Cards!!! We are hoping to play “Family & Friends Bingo” in the early spring. New cards for new players and replacement cards will easily be available for purchase at that time. Stay tuned!
On our first Spring-like day, volunteers delivered freshly baked Cupcakes, with sprinkles, made by John Ayotte of Chef du Jour, to each of our members. That’s deliveries to about 100 homes here in Westborough. What a festive way to stay connected! Thanks to all who helped make this happen!
This is how we operate…..
Our November Board Meeting – outside, with masks, and social distancing. In November! In New England! We are hearty.
The Town of Westborough has instituted a new, rapid, emergency notification service called CodeRED®. The system will distribute emergency messages to targeted areas or the entire Town at a very high speed. CodeRED® employs mapping capability for geographic targeting of calls coupled with a high speed telephone calling system. It is capable of delivering customized pre-recorded emergency messages directly to homes, businesses, live individuals, and answering machines.
This service can be used in case of fires, chemical spills, evacuations, lock downs, downed power lines, lost individuals, natural disasters, abductions, water system problems, bomb threats, or other emergencies. Calls can be geographically targeted for localized messaging. If the incident widespread, the entire community could be called with the same message in a short period of time.
This service will also be used to send messages regarding COVID-19 vaccination sites.
Westborough residents and businesses are welcomed and encouraged to enter contact information for their home, business, and mobile phones so they may be contacted by the system in the event of an emergency. Text and email accounts can also be registered. It is important to register especially you utilize unlisted numbers, cell phones, or VOIP. Those who do not register their address and phone number may not be notified with CodeRED in the case of an emergency. Registration is confidential, free, and easy.
For questions please email CodeRED or call 508-366-3040.
A COVID-19 information phone line has been established by the Town and can be utilized for any questions that you may have. If the operator is unable to answer your question you will be directed to the appropriate department. The phone number is 508-871-5111 or you can email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
