The American Legion Riders Post 181 from Sandwich coordinated “Bowl for Vets” on Saturday, Jan. 25, at Sandwich Idle Hour Lanes. There was bowling, a 50/50, turkeys (bowling strikes), food and raffles. Cash prizes were awarded to first place, Bob Bols bowled 898 series; second place, Brian Lunt 867 series; and third place, William Parkhurst, 862 series.

The post thanks 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.

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 all previous wars and to protect future veterans from being left behind should they become prisoners of war or missing in action.
