Eastern held its 18th annual Bowlathon on March 3 at Willi Bowl on Route 6 in North Windham. The Bowlathon has become an annual tradition involving the Eastern community, alumni, local businesses and the general public, raising funds for scholarships for students who graduated from local high schools. Once again all the lanes were filled with 130 total participants. Windham Pepsi and Charter again served as lead sponsors.
"What makes this event so special is the outstanding support we continue to receive from Eastern faculty, staff and students as well as the local business community," said Ken DeLisa, vice president for institutional advancement. "We had another full house and I am pleased to report that we raised $7,500 to add to our Community Youth Scholarship pool."
