CARLTON — The Carlton Fire Department’s annual bingo fundraiser is set to return Feb. 11 after a two-year hiatus due to COVID.

Doors open for the fundraiser at 5:30 p.m. inside the Carlton High School gymnasium, with bingo games starting at 7 p.m.

All proceeds will go toward the purchase of equipment for the fire department.

Those interested in playing bingo must purchase a $1 ticket from a member of the department, which includes 10 games and entry into the prize raffle. Attendees must buy additional tickets to play more bingo games.

Cash prizes will be awarded to five raffle winners, along with the option for a rifle to the top-prize winner. Winners do not need to attend to be eligible.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
