Bowling and Equestrian for 2016 have begun!!

Tuesday, Sept 6 was the first day of horseback riding. It went very well for the first day. We had a couple of new volunteers and even a new horse this year. Milly is a beautiful horse but decided she really didn’t wan tto participate and sat right down in the middle of the ride. We were very proud of our athlete, Patty Price , who was riding Milly. She never panicked or made loud noises to startle Milly more. She exited the horse and all was good!

Bowling began at Byllye lanes on Sunday, Sept.11. Lisa Mclaughlin , once again, had everything very well organized and with a few small changes, the “strikes” started to fly! We still have a few open spots so if you are interested, contact us by Sept 16.
