Granton Growing Strong (G-G-S)
Bingo Night
G-G-S is their Name-O
October 19, 2022


By Edward DuBois


The Growing Granton Strong (GGS) group, made up of teachers and community members, will hold a bingo night Oct. 19, at 6 p.m. The public is invited. Fannie’s Super Club & Motel is hosting the event.


“The general purpose of Growing Granton Strong is to bring our school and community together. We want to offer positive events for our students, community and the surrounding communities. This is a way we can promote Granton, our school and give back to the community,” said Kim Aumann, instructional and behavioral coach for the Granton Area School District.


Why bingo, though?


“When we were brainstorming ideas for events, bingo was one that we thought would be enjoyed. We know bingo events have been successful for other communities and a variety of ages can participate,” she explained.


“Our first bingo night [last school year] was a huge success. We had a great turnout and had a lot of positive feedback. Because it went over so well, we decided to continue having bingo events throughout the year. Besides our bingo nights, we plan to have a painting class for adults and children, a Cabin Fever Bulldog Bash this winter and our Color Run on May 13, 2023.”


This bingo night will be very similar to their last event at Fannie’s, with a Halloween theme this time. Participants can dress in costumes, but it is not required. There is an entry fee, which includes an appetizer buffet. The prizes are from local businesses that GGS supports in the process.


Any proceeds from the event will be put back into the community. The money helps pay for future events, goes towards organizations in the school or community projects GGS can support.


The GGS looks for ways to bring the community together and have a little fun in the process. Their hope is that people outside the community learn a little more about the Granton School and community.


“We love that our events are brining people from other communities together as well,” Aumann said.
