Lisa Egan, Executive Director of the Reading/North Reading Chamber of Commerce, is excited to sponsor this event. She explains, “Every year the Fall Street Faire is an excellent opportunity for residents to learn about the amazing local businesses we have in Reading. Many of these businesses are suffering right now due to the pandemic. We are thrilled to partner with the Reading Rotary Club to sponsor Fall Street Faire BINGO in an effort to spotlight our local businesses, which need our support more than ever.”
Reading Rotary President Jenniffer Rogers agrees: “It was a challenge to come up with a way to bring our town together while staying socially distant due to the COVID crisis. We hope Fall Street Faire BINGO will be a fun way to get folks out and about in town during this beautiful fall weather.”
