Bobbie Thielen (foreground) picks the next number during bingo Mondays at the Friendship House, while a table of players check their cards. Thielen has been the caller for the 1 p.m. event every Monday for the last two years and says they are looking for more participants. “I love it,” she says. “I love the people and I love handing out money.” Freecoffee and shared treats are served during an intermission. The cost is a nickel per card and proceeds are shared between the winner and the venue. Get there early to pick your cards, Thielen warns, because she starts at 1 p.m. sharp.
