Crazy Hat Bingo - 2010

The High Falls Civic Association Annual Crazy Hat Bingo Party 2010

A huge crowd turned out for the 2010 Crazy Hat Bingo Party on March 27th at the Marbletown Community Center in Stone Ridge. This annual event featured a variety of Bingo games as well as the famous Crazy Hat Promenade and Contest. Participants also enjoyed a delicious repast prepared by the Depuy Canal House - Chefs on Fire, the High Falls Cafe, the Northern Spy, and the Tapp Inn. Members and friends contributed homemade goodies and sweet treats to complete the meal. Our host for the evening was Jay Blotcher. Civic Association president Stephen Gilman, assisted by Vice President, Bill Bannan, called the numbers for a variety of Bingo games, which ranged from the basic pattern to our own special "High Falls" pattern.
