By the look of the parking lot at the Francisco Community Building Saturday night, the Bingo for the North Stokes Softball Team was a huge success! A big thank you goes to all who made this fundraiser not only fun but such a worthwhile event. Go Vikings!!

We will have another Bingo Saturday, February 17, at the Francisco Community Building. Sponsored by the Francisco Ruritan Club, this is a Cash Bingo, with all the proceeds going to the upkeep of the community building. Hot dogs will be ready at 6:00 pm and the games start at 7:00 pm. The cost is $20 for 20 games. All are welcome to come and have a fun filled evening.

Don’t forget about the Birdhouse-Gourd Painting Class to be held Monday evening, February 19, at the Francisco Community Building. The class will be led by local artist, Ruth Ann Hardin. Gourds, paint and brushes will be supplied or you may bring your own. The class starts at 7:00 pm and the cost is $10. This sounds like fun and just in time to put you in the “spring spirit!” The community birds will thank you for their new homes!!
