In April we are sponsoring a Healthy BINGO Challenge. You should be receiving your BINGO card via e-mail by April 1. Participation is voluntary. Each bingo square contains a healthy activity under physical, nutrition, mental or social health.

For your first BINGO only – either across, down, diagonal or 4 corners you will receive a healthy snack.If you keep playing and get a blackout by April 30, you will be put in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate.

In North Mankato, bring your BINGO’s to the HR Office. In Faribault, bring your BINGO’s to Laura Hardy.

Watch for news about the poker walk in May.
