First $50 winner Betty Spirito.

A half-century tradition started by the La Canoa Lions Club ended Friday when Bingo was called out for the last time at the East Center.

The evening’s big winners were Jack Stoddard and John Gingerich, who each took home $500. Friday night’s swan song brought out 22 players.


Carol Walbrink also picked up $50.
