  1. Christina,

    Did you know that every Tuesday night, Our Lady of Lebanon holds bingo at their Church Hall starting at 7 PM. The first Tuesday of the month, there is always a free buffet and the Tuesday after their festival, they give away all the left overs from the fair. That one tomorrow is the BEST!!!

    There is only one problem with it, it is still a smoking bingo. But they have 4 or 5 smoke-eaters that work pretty well. Their jackpots and door prizes are really big and nice.

    This is a really nice Church, no matter if they like Father Alex or not. And for the record, he seems to be a really nice man! And I am not even Catholic or a Christian.

    1. Nope, I didn't--but I do now...Sweet! Thanks for letting me and The Easton Eccentric's readers know!
