Calling All Young At Heart!
It’s Our “Super Bowl Bunco Fellowship”
  • - Friday, January 31st –
6:00pm  In the Fellowship Hall
Everyone should bring an appetizer or a dessert. $2.00 per person donation. Wear the colors of your favorite team! What is this game of Bunco?  Bunco has been played in America at least since the 1800’s. It’s a game centered around three dice and usually three sets of four players, averaging a standard group of 12. It is a game of pure luck; no real skill is required other than rolling the dice. However, the game is played in upbeat and social setting involving a lot of eating and fellowship. Join Us and Bring a Friend!
