Volunteering ‘fills my heart’

Nannette Vincent plays an indispensable role in the various Sulphur Senior Center activities.

As a partner for the elderly, Vincent volunteers her time to help with many events at the center; however, her two primary events are bingo and “Nanette’s Kitchen.”

Every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Vincent can be found at the center’s bi-weekly bingo game. Sometimes she just calls bingo, and sometimes she runs the show.

“It depends on how many volunteers we have,” she explained. “If I’m there by myself, which sometimes happens, I’ll be the one to hand them their gift. Then, we start all over again.”

The entry fee for bingo is $1, and participants are able to win prizes such as toilet paper, paper towels, and dishwashing soap.
