Our Explorer families had so much fun at Bingo night last week! A huge thank you to the volunteers who helped set up, handed out snacks and supplies throughout the event and stayed to clean up. These events are only possible with the help of our incredible volunteers! We hope to see your Explorer family at our next event.
