Aug. 17 saw the return of Wednesday night bingo to the Summit County Elks Lodge #2561 on Highway 9 in Silverthorne, just one mile north of Interstate 70. After a break of 10 months, folks were thrilled to see the game being offered again. Marsha Youngdahl won the first big prize of the new session.

Gayle Knorr, who has long championed bingo at the lodge, offered a Wild Six Block, Field Goal Special, Big Diamond, Progressive and Big Money Blackout at the first event.
