The American Legion Riders Post 181 from Sandwich coordinated "Bowl for Vets" on Jan. 26 at Sandwich Idle Hour Lanes. Cash prizes were awarded for first place – Bobby Wilgus (bowled 919 series), second place – Virgil Range (bowled 844 series), and third place – Dawn Dennison (bowled 827 series).

Gary "Names" Vandenbos, vice president of Rolling Thunder Chapter 1 of Illinois, spoke about Rolling Thunder and thanked everyone who supports them.

Proceeds from this event will be sent to Rolling Thunder to further educate the public that many American prisoners of war were left behind after previous wars and to protect future veterans from being left behind should they become prisoners of war or missing in action.
