Melissa the cow milks drama in deciding barnyard bingo

July 01, 1999

Melissa, a Holstein from the Doll farm in Glenville, Pa., did her part to earn Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department a lot of money during its eighth annual barnyard bingo Saturday.

The cow took two hours and 30 minutes to mark the winning square. During that time, the Fire Department sold out of pit beef and pit ham, said Fire Department historian Jim Buckley.

Figures were unavailable on what the fire company netted from the fund-raiser, but proceeds from bingo ticket sales will go to its building fund, Buckley said.

Bingo winners were Lorrie Boyer, Dover, Pa., $1,000; Ryan Bosley of Millers, and Doris Buckley and Malden Miller of Manchester, $200 each; Faye Richards and Dawn Zgorski of Hampstead, Don Schwartz of Reisterstown, and Lydia Fuhrman of Glen Rock, Pa., $50 each.

A raffle for Haunted Hayride tickets was held. Winners included Brian Stephens and Karen Stephens of Hampstead; Ricky Jones and Don Love of Finksburg; Jo Nusbaum and Loretta Koblylski of Sykesville; Bernice Martin, Hershel Wagner and Becky Schoeffield, of Manchester; Joel Myers of Hanover, Pa.; Gregory Witthauer of Glenville, Pa.; Rufus Fuhrman of Blackrock, Pa.; Trudy Zeigler and Mike Bailey of Glen Rock, Pa.
