Hill Country Rehab and Nursing Home hosted a special bingo Tuesday night, in conjunction with ambassadors from the Chamber of Commerce.
This was the first such Ambassadors Game Night, according to Laura Jordan, chairwoman of the chamber ambassadors.
About two dozen people attended.
“The idea behind the game night is to give everyone a chance to enjoy each other, to get to know what the community has to offer without the structure and formality of a networking mixer,” Jordan said.
Seeing Cove as a great community with people wanting to be part of activities and charitable groups, Jordan continued, “As people meet and interact, they will learn about their neighbors and may find ways to get involved, or they may just enjoy getting out of the house and having some fun for $5.”
Trae Cunningham, who serves as Hill Country Rehab’s director of admissions and a chamber ambassador, volunteered the facility for game night. “We’ve been here a long time, and we do what we can when we can for the community.”
Cunningham noted the residents who participated in game night felt like the hosts. “They like doing anything with the outside public.”
Funds raised from game night will provide a “nest egg” for the chamber ambassadors to be used to do more in the community for the future, Jordan said.
Other game nights are in the planning stages, as well, featuring board games, cards, or even softball in the park, Jordan said.
