There will not be a speaker at this meeting since all our members have not yet returned, but we are still planning a fun an interesting meeting. So join us and enjoy a friendly game of Bingo.


Did you know...

A game of chance named lotto was being played in Italy by about 1530. In 18th-century a home version (called Tombola) was created in Naples with the addition of cards, tokens and the calling out of numbers. In the nineteenth century a game like this was widely played in Germany to teach children spelling, animal names and multiplication tables.

The French game Le Lotto appeared in 1778, featuring 27 squares in a layout of three rows and nine columns. Five squares in each row had numbers ranging from 1 through 90, which led to the modern design.

In the early 1920s, Hugh J. Ward created and standardized the game at carnivals in and around Pittsburgh and the Western Pennsylvania area. He copyrighted it and published a rule book in 1933.

The game was further popularized by Edwin Lowe. While at a traveling carnival near Atlanta in December 1929 the toy merchandiser saw people eagerly playing a game called "Beano" following Ward's rules, with dried beans, a rubber stamp, and cardboard sheets. Lowe took the game to New York where friends liked playing it. The Lowe-produced Bingo game had two versions, a 12-card set for $1.00 and a $2.00 set with 24 cards. By the 1940s there were Bingo games throughout the US.

The origin of the name Bingo is unknown but may date to the middle 1920s. There are claims that one of Lowe's friends was so excited to have won that she yelled out "Bingo" instead of "Beano," or that the word echoes the sound of a bell.

We welcome eight new members to the club. If you are interested in joining click here for the Fountain Hills Women’s Club Membership Application PDF. You can complete the application and send to fountainhillswomensclub@gmail.com.

The Book Club will be held Wednesday, September 28th. The book is "The American Girl" by Rachael English.

As a group of Fountain Hills Women,
We unite in our sisterhood,
And pledge our total commitment
For our Town's common

We will dedicate ourselves to serve where
Ever the need may be,
And support the worthwhile causes, that

We'll share in each other's friendship,
Work together in harmony,
Encourage all women to join us,
This creed is our testimony.
