Why pay Tribute to St. Rita’s Bingo Workers?

• The Bingo Workers did NOT get reimbursed one penny for their efforts.

•(same) Bingo Workers consistently made every Thursday (Night) and every other Saturday (afternoon) St. Rita's Bingo , year after year.

•Bingo Workers received NO “special ” place of honor during the time they were in the corps, (to us ) it was part of being in the corps and showing our love

for the corps and each other.

AFTER EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT DRILL REHEARSAL CARMAN WOULD ASK FOR A SHOW OF HANDS AS TO WHO WAS GOING TO WORK THE BINGO

THE NEXT NIGHT.. NO ONE RAISED THEIR HANDS !

The one time that the Bingo Workers protested because it was... "the same people showing up to work Bingo night after night", we decided that we will not

work the follow Bingo ( to prove a point ) … that brought immediate outrage from Carman Cluna ,he proceeded to make his infamous speech about “The Tail

NOT wagging the Dog”. The drum corps being "the dog" the Bingo being “the tail”. However, because of the workers voicing their opinion, Carman understood

and from the very next Bingo forward the Bingo Workers did NOT have to pay for their refreshments at the Bingo Hall EVER AGAIN !
