MRPA Monthly March Meeting will be on Wednesday, April 10, 2024. 

The doors will open at 10:30 AM for card players and the meeting will start at 1:00 PM.  We will have an afternoon of bingo. We’ll play seven games and you might walk away with some extra cash in your pocket and work up an appetite for pulled chicken with all the trimmings from Chris Dewy and Celtic Cooks Catering. As usual, your side dishes and desserts are appreciated.


The annual spring casino trip is scheduled for Thursday, April 18, 2024. We are heading to Ho-Chunk in Wisconsin Dells.  The cost is $55 per person and you get back $25 in slot play.  There will be three pick-up points at the following Park & Ride Lots: Hales Corners is first at 8:00 AM; Watertown Plank Road at 8:30 AM; and lastly, Delafield/Nagawaukee at I-94 & Highway 83 at 8:50 AM.

Kenn and Dennis Ziebell will be leading the trip with Happy Times Tours and would like to remind those interested to contact Kenn asap if you want to go.  Kenn will need to get the list of names and payment to Happy Times about a week before the trip, please don’t wait until the minute to sign up.  Kenn can be reached at 262-532-2597; leave a message and Kenn will get back to you.

If you don’t want to feed the slots all afternoon, Ho Chunk bingo matinee session sales start at 12:15 PM and bingo beings at 1:15 PM. An electronic bingo package is $25 and on Thursdays it buy-one-get-one so you’ll have more cards to play with and the machine does all the work. You can also buy paper cards as well as extra card for special games. Bingo ends around 2:20 PM and you still have time afterward to try your favorite slots one more time before we head home.

Kenn will be on hand at our next meeting on Wednesday, March 13, 2024 if you want to pay him at that time.  If not, please call Kenn 262-532-2597.
