Pierce County Legion bingo building to get facelift
PIERCE — The Pierce County American Legion bingo stand at the county fairgrounds is currently “under construction.”
For many years, probably going back to the 1940s, Pierce County fairgoers have enjoyed playing bingo at the building, run by all of the American Legion organizations in the county. And although the building has served its purpose well for many, many years, the structure is showing its age.
Legionnaire Rodney Kollars of Osmond was appointed by the Pierce County Legion posts to oversee the repairs to the bingo stand.
Kollars said the past few weeks, volunteers have been helping, working with Seth Noble and Paul Kollars, both veterans, of Noble & Kollars Construction Co., to repair the roof, trusses, fascia and siding.
He said they are reusing as much material as possible to help keep the cost down.
When completed, the stand will match the other green and tan buildings at the fairgrounds.
He said the Legion is accepting donations for the project and anyone wanting to donate can contact him at (402) 518-1355. Donations should be made to the Pierce County Fair Board of Directors and designated for the Legion Bingo Stand.
The various organizations in each of the towns in the county — Tomek-Otto Post 72 in Pierce, American Legion Post 326 in Osmond and American Legion Post 148 in Plainview — as well as the Eagle Scouts of the county, are working together to get the building looking good for Pierce County Fair 2021.
