Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress Wednesday, March 17, 2010 15A Bowlers hit strikes to s u p p0rt +se+n i600r long term facility M. Kate West Chester Editor The pins have fallen and the results of the Feb. 27 Seneca Long Term Facility Bowlathon have been tallied. "To date we have received $4,100, and pledge dollars are still trickling in," said assis- tant activity director and event coordinator Sandi Gibson. She said 22 bowlers played three games to raise funds for the residents&apos; activity fund. "We had more bowlers signed up but some became ill. We have to offer specia! thanks to Derek Anderson and his league bowlers for fill- ing in the gaps and helping us to exceed our financial goal," she said. Long-term residents Shirley Fichera and Minnie Edmonds attended the fundraiser. "Shirley said she has been a bowler for years and wants to join in on the fun next time, and Minnie commented on what a fun time she had watching everyone bowl," said Gibson. Gibson said although cen- ter manager Dick Lee had the high score for the day, every- one who participated was a winner. "'They all said over and over again what a great time they had and asked, when are we doing this again?" she added. When asked what type of activities have been planned with the new funds Gibson said, "The residents are in charge of choosing their ac- tivities. They have had two meetings so far and have de- cided they would like to have a garden area with a path to wheel around in." She said the residents were looking at vegetable, flower and herb boxes. She said they had also discussed some sum- mer lighting and "a lovely place where they could go to take care of something." "Shirley said the garden would give meaning to her life," Gibson said. iiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiii!il Cheered on by residents from the Seneca Long Term Facility, local bowlers hit high scores and earned big dollars Feb. 27.
