The Guelph Lions Club have been operating a TV Bingo program on the local cable channel for over 40 years. Fifteen years ago Rogers Television asked our club to organize a regional program for the Rogers Kitchener Region. The organization and gaining a license from the Ontario Alcohol and Gaming Commission took almost two years. The program first went live in October of 1998 with the Guelph , Kitchener Pioneer, Cambridge Highlands, Lions Clubs and a community music organization in Brantford. These clubs were later joined by the KW Community Spirit, Stratford, St Marys, and Orangeville Lions Clubs. The Orangeville Club resigned after about two years but the remaining seven continue to be members of the consortium and the program is a major source of funds for the member clubs.
The program is aired approximately 45 of the 52 weeks of the year. The Guelph Lions Club provides the manpower to produce the program each Wednesday evening and requires six members each night.
