We began our Winter bowling season on Sat., Oct 16th at AMF Colonial Lanes in Hickory (located across the road from Valley Hills Mall).
You can join us beginning on any week during the season. So, if you missed the first week, that's ok. Come on the weeks that you are available. If you attend on Sat., Oct 30th, wear your halloween costume and bring a bag of candy or finger food to share with the group.
The time is 10am - 12 noon and the cost will be $3 for two games. Shoe rental is included in the cost.
WE HAD 47 BOWLERS THE FIRST WEEK!!
I hope to see you there this Saturday!

Walkin' Roll Dance was a success!
Walkin' Roll Activities League had their annual dance this past Saturday, July 31st at First Presbyterian Church in Newton. We had a Western theme for this year's dance.
This event was free and open to all individuals with disabilities in Catawba County and surrounding areas. All ages were encouraged to attend.
We had live music performed again this year by the South 321 band.
Bandannas were passed out to everyone as they arrived.
As usual we had more than enough food and snacks to share. David Murdock and Aaron Ballengee celebrated their birthdays at the dance and served a lot of birthday cake.
We raffled a Pearl necklace and a Fossil watch by selling $1 tickets at the door and throughout the dance. The winning numbers were drawn and the prizes given out. Since these prizes had been donated, $43 dollars collected in the raffle has gone back to our league as a donation.

Thanks to everyone who took time from their busy schedules to come out in support of our 16th annual Allstar Teeball game this past weekend. Associates from Hickory, Conover and Granite Falls' Wal-Mart locations brought drinks, water, coolers and ice. It was a big help having your team on the field with us again this year.
I thought I heard someone say, "We really didn't do that much". You did a lot more than you think. The fact that "Wal-Mart" understands what we are doing and have felt lead to send volunteers out to interact with us on a personal level means so much.
An Excerpt taken from the Wal-Mart Foundation page of the Wal-Mart website (http://walmartstores.com/CommunityGiving/203.aspx): "In all of our giving efforts, we strive to meet the unmet needs of underserved populations and support organizations that give individuals access to a better life. We believe in operating globally and giving back locally. We encourage our associates to support programs that make a positive difference in their communities through volunteer efforts and financial contributions. We involve our associates in determining how Walmart Foundation dollars are used to support causes that are important to them."
