The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3693 and its auxiliary held the monthly Senior Bingo and Birthday Party on April 8 at the post hall on Churchpoint Road in Gonzales.

The celebration was attended by 132 seniors and people with disabilities. Twenty gifts were given and three door prizes were distributed.

Celebrating April birthdays were Lucille Heath, Ruby Ory, Annetta Ross and Arthemise Troxclair.

Celebrating their 63rd wedding anniversary were J.E. and Betty Lanoux.

Bingo chairwoman Gertie Savoy said the monthly party could not have been held without a group of dedicated volunteers.

The next party is set for 1 p.m. May 13 at the VFW hall.
