FAAWIS SPRING BOWLING
April 16, 2016
by Isabel Maria Piana and Maria Salomon-Yumang
Every year the FAAWIS community gathers to raise funds for the Free Medical Clinic. While some of the participants are die-hard bowlers who try to improve their techniques, others are content to just dust off their bowling gear for their once a year adventure on the bowling lanes. But either way, everyone from the littlest bowler to the oldest participant is there for a good time. And, this year was no exception.
This year the bowlers gathered on April 16th at JB’s on 41 and filled thirty-four lanes. At the end of the afternoon, these participants heard their names called to claim the following awards.
All scores are for highest two games.
1st Team: Gerry Ramos, Paul Clemente, Ralph Ramos & Molly Ramos 1223
2nd Team: Derick Yumang, Lala Yumang, Joseph Yumang & Marnel Cruz 1073
3rd Team: Ed Gilbert, Bong Capitan, Patrick Elliott & Richard Coury 1014
1st Place: Adrienne Alessio 312
2nd Place Sara Poplawski 305
3rd Place: Annalie Moloney 261

Congratulations to all the winners! 50/50 raffle and other prizes were given away. FAAWIS was able to donate $600 to the Free Medical Clinic, the beneficiary of this bowling event.
See you next Spring!
