Earl Sears, our outgoing State Representative for District 11, will be our special guest speaker.

Lunch will be catered by Big John Restaurant & Catering and the planned menu is roast beef with some delicious sides and dessert.

Turkey Bingo 2018
The Collinsville Chamber of Commerce is planning a family bingo event for Saturday, November 3, 2018 at the Veterans Memorial Building at 909 W Main Street.
 
The bingo event, named Turkey Bingo since it takes place a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving, will serve as a fundraiser for the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce. The funds raised from this event help the Chamber to expand their programming, which supports local businesses. 
 
Between the hours of 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm, approximately 30 games of bingo will be played with bigger, better prizes for winners of all ages. Prizes include, but are not limited to, frozen Thanksgiving turkeys, gift cards to local businesses and restaurants, toys and games, a Roku, and more! The grand prize given away at the end of the evening will be a flat screen HDTV. Concession items such as bottled water, soda, pizza, and candy will be available for purchase.
 
Admission prices are $15.00 for adults and $5.00 for kids 12 and under. Admission prices will include three bingo cards per adult and one card per child. Additional bingo cards may be purchased for $2 per card. Cards are reusable, allowing you to play all night for more chances to win!
