The American Legion Riders Post 181 from Sandwich coordinated Bowl for Vets on Jan. 27 at Sandwich Idle Hour Lanes. The event included bowling, 50/50, turkeys (bowling strikes), food, raffles, seeing friends and making friends.
Cash prizes were awarded to Steve Skopek in first place (bowled 887 series), Nick Weber in second place (bowled 877 series), and Tom Bernhart in third place (bowled 876 series).
"Thanks to Sandy and Bob Lawrence for coordinating the event, Sandwich Idle Hour Lanes for providing the facility, the great turnout from the community, and the many businesses who donated items for the raffles," said a news release from the group.
Proceeds from this event will be sent to Rolling Thunder to further educate the public about the many American prisoners of war who were left behind after all previous wars and to protect future veterans from being left behind should they become prisoners of war or missing in action.
