For some people, the term "bonanza" calls to mind a 1960s TV series. But many Hagerstown area residents say "bonanza" means something quite different to them - namely, a night out for some fun and a chance to win cash. The Beaver Creek Lions Club provided such a night Saturday, March 4, at Hagerstown Elks Lodge 378 on Robinwood Drive.

Anne Martin, secretary of Beaver Creek Lions Club, said Saturday's event was the club's 15th bonanza.
