Parents, students and friends gather in support for the Pine Bluffs High School music program during Music Bingo.

This year the Pine Bluffs Music Bingo was held in the new elementary school for the first time. The Music Bingo is the biggest annual fundraiser that the Music department holds. The money earned goes into many things including equipment repair, taking students to the music festival in Cheyenne, taking students to district honor band and choir, and helps pay for the music played throughout the year.

The last few years, the Bingo program has run fairly late. A lot of thought went into how it could be improved and slightly shortened to cater to the youth and families. This year, things went smoother with serving, distributing cards, and even calling the games which resulted in the program wrapping up in a more timely fashion. Students not only helped set up, but acted as runners, servers, and the clean up crew.

"I was very pleased with the number of people that showed up. It's really great that the community supports music in their schools. Practically every seat we had set up was filled," said Misty Curtis, the music director for Pine Bluffs.

Not only did people who had kids in the music department show up, but people with no direct association to the music department came to express their support.

"Seeing everybody and the community involvement was my favorite part," said Stuart Lanning.

'Children at Play,' a jam band containing students from Pine Bluffs High School, played the opening music while people enjoyed food and games. Multiple businesses in the community provided bingo prizes. It is because of the community's support that it ended in such a huge success.

"It was very entertaining. I won quite a few little prizes and had a lot of fun," said Tabitha Borgman.
