Time seems to speed up around the first of the year. But, the weekend before the Super Bowl seems to drag.
We have the cure for that. The 5th annual “Bowl Over Polio” fundraiser sponsored by the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club will be held on that Sunday, January 25.
The venue will be the same, even though its name has been changed: the East Greenbush Bowling Center (formerly Spare Time), located at 570 Columbia Turnpike in East Greenbush, just down the road from our regular meeting place at Quigley’s restaurant.
The family-fun event is open to anyone in the community for just $15, which includes either of two 2½-hour, all-you-can-bowl sessions (noon to 2:30 p.m., and 2:30 to 5 pm.) plus free rental shoes. In addition, raffles and prizes will be presented at each session.
And, because Rotary is a totally volunteer organization, all profits from the bowl-a-thon will go directly to RI’s PolioPlus initiative to end polio worldwide.
So, start enlisting family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and anyone else you’d like to help you participate in this bargain-priced, top-shelf event.
