The Willmar Community Center played host Tuesday afternoon to bingo with prizes of fresh farm produce.
WILLMAR — Upon walking into the Willmar Community Center on Tuesday afternoon, guests were greeted with smells of fresh farm produce as they gathered around with their trusty bingo cards with friends for an afternoon of Garden Bingo.
The center could have easily been confused for a local farmers market, but instead, those who won their games of bingo were able to choose a number of items to fill their bags with and take home.
A number of local farmers and businesses donated the items to help make the first-ever Garden Bingo gathering a success.
"I'm very pleased with the variety we were provided," Willmar Community Center manager Britta Diem said. "People have an abundance of produce and this is just a way to distribute it a different way."
After taking a few months off during the summer, this was the first time the bingo group came back together, Diem added, stating that regular bingo will resume in September.
