To the editor:
On Jan. 25, the Burton Street cafeteria came alive as the PTA served up another Family Game Night. This year the event featured bingo, trivia, board games and exciting Minute-to-Win-it challenges, hosted by PTA parent Kris Denton. The new PTA sound system was a welcome addition to the event and supplied game-time-tunes and the smooth bingo calling of Cazenovia High School freshman, Jillian Britton.
Laughter filled the room as students bravely ventured on stage for a chance to balance dice on popsicle sticks, speed stack cups, or recreate the front of a Lucky Charms box, in under a minute. Bellies were filled with Caz Pizza and tasty treats donated by Dunkin Donuts and generous PTA parents. When the shouts of “Bingo” subsided, the evening concluded with the energy at an all time high, as a mass of students crowded together and waited for the names of raffle prize-winners to be announced.
The parent and student raffle/prizes this year included numerous gift certificates and items from local merchants, community members and Burton Street teachers. Event organizers, PTA parents Teresa Marris and Amanda Denton, were thrilled with the generosity of the community and the attendance of the event.
