Glenview children went old school on March 31, putting away their video games and leaving behind their TVs to join members of the Glenview Senior Center for a few games of Bingo at the Glenview Public Library.

Through the Bingo Buddies-Intergenerational Fun program, kids in Grades 1-5 had the chance to learn the classic game from some of the community’s most seasoned players, while interacting with a generation they rarely get a chance to spend time with.
