Need some help on JUNE 3rd.....with Kentucky State Bingo. While the program kicks off JUNE 4th, we have to run KBS Bingo to raise monies. If we can get volunteers to run the program, we can keep the monies raised to fund the summer program. Interested? Get with DR. Pete or Vivian Fleenor. We need people to walk and sale pull tabs and run it. Can you help? Thank you!
The question keeps coming in about... is it too late to apply...no. there are two application processes within KBS: the posts and the headquarter. While posts try to wrap things up in early May, I can take applications up to the day of camp. If someone asks, have them call me. Thank you.
One of our alumni, congrats on a great job!
This KBS is looking to be epic!!!
Even more success!!!
