Thanks to the generosity of the Eastern family, 27 pairs of Eastern mentors and Windham children were sponsored for the Bowlathon on March 1, said Kim Silcox, director of Eastern's Center for Community Engagement. The Eastern Men's Soccer team and CCE Student Leaders came out in force to serve as mentors to Windham children at this event. The students from Windham Middle School left the Bowlathon feeling engaged, welcomed and supported.
90 bowlers participated in the Bowlathon; Karen Collins, Bob Niderno, Mark Labbe, and Michelle Labbe -- the KC Lane Crashers -- was the winning team. The event generated $7,000 for the Center for Community Engagement and scholarships for Eastern students who have unmet financial need and attended area high schools.
