Community bowls for kids

| February 24, 2014

COSHOCTON – Annin employees came out in full force for Saturday’s round of Bowling for Kids.

“We had seven teams of them,” said Sheila Mayse, director of The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County. “They are a very wonderful supporter.”

The Mentoring Center uses funds raised from its Bowling for Kids event to support its Bigs & Litttles, Little Buddies, Peer Mentoring and Side By Side Parent Mentoring programs.

“We couldn’t offer these programs without the communities help,” Mayse said.

Patsy Bickel and Brenda Burns have bowled with Annin’s teams for seven years.

“It’s for the kids,” Burns said. “Ours were young once too.”

The team they were on raised a total of $650.

“I love doing it,” Bickel said.

The Mentoring Center extended its fundraiser this year and will have a school bowl on Friday, March 21 and a community bowl on Saturday, March 22. Plans also are being made for a summer bowl.

“We want people to be reminded all year about what we do,” Mayse said. “We welcome anyone and everyone to come bowl with us.”
