STOCKBRIDGE – For the first time in 2020, Wednesday is Bingo Day in Stockbridge.

Councilman John Blount’s Seniors Bingo Bash will be held this Wednesday, Jan. 29, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Merle Manders Conference Center, located at 111 Davis Road in Stockbridge.

Wednesday’s event will be the first time for Blount’s Bingo Bash to be held in the Merle Manders Conference Center after having previously been held in the Ted Strickland Community Center.

The Merle Manders Conference Center will now be the regular host of Blount’s monthly bingo events, unless noted otherwise. The event is typically held on the last Wednesday of every month.

Senior citizens and others aged 55 and over are encouraged to attend the free community event, and free refreshments and prizes for attendees will be given out.

“2020 is the Centennial year for the city of Stockbridge and I encourage community members to participate with our activities,” Blount said in a release. “My first Seniors Bingo Bash for 2020 will help commemorate the epic year. We will celebrate the unity of our strong and progressive community. As always, I want to see bingo players of all levels to come out on Wednesday. Let's make this year phenomenal.”

Pre-event registration for the Wednesday event is not required. For more information, contact LaQuinda Jackson at or call (678) 833-3348.
