  • The German Flatts Town Park was the site of the 13th annual Cow Plop Bingo contest and ice cream social on Saturday.
    And although the smell of food filled the air as volunteers served hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream and strawberry shortcake it was another smell that brought in the crowd.
    Locals gathered to try their luck at the 50-50 cow plop bingo.
    Friends of the German Flatts Town Park President Nelson Johnson said the contest was a combination of five bingo cards broken down into 100 squares. Those who wished to participate in the contest chose the square or squares they wanted to claim, he said.
    “The square that has the most cow plop is the winning square,” said Nelson.
    He added, there would be at least one winner per card and if a card is completely filled and claimed one person could receive up to $250. This year’s winners were Tom Graham, Judy Lennox, Tom Bernier, Don Senner and Ryah and Emily Spatto.
    All of the funds raised during the event helped to benefit the town park expansion project, which includes the re-setting of the old school house, an extended parking lot and a community center.
    “The school house will be in place in three more weeks and the 80 feet by 40 feet community center should be fully enclosed by the end of October,” said Nelson adding the community center will be used for town events such as wedding receptions and indoor garage sales.
    Town Supervisor Frank Spatto said the cow plop contest is something fun the town has always done. “The contest is off the wall, but everyone enjoys it and looks forward to it every year,” he said.
    Upcoming town park fundraisers include Polish Night on Aug. 10 and a Civil War re-enactment in September.
