Bowl for Charity

By John Wagner

The Highland Knights of Columbus Council 1580 hosted their Annual Bowl for Charity fundraiser on Sunday, April 10, 2016 at Hi Top Bowl in Highland, IL. The money raised will be used by the Springfield Diocese to help support the education of our diocesan seminarians. Our council entered one team. It was a great day for camaraderie with our KC brothers from Gillespie. The tournament was managed very well which included lunch and refreshments. One item was head cheese, my favorite, and the Bud Light was good too. Our team members were: Captain Jeff Lister 246 (with five and four strikes in a row)+201+211 = 658, Dennis Lahey 242 (with seven in a row)+165+224 = 631, Bob Kline 164+158+191 = 513, Andy Kline 163+143+166 = 472 and John Wagner (with racquetball glove) 201-141-155 = 499. Our first game was a "killer" scratch score of 1018. Not bad for two of us who hadn’t bowled for a few years. Great fun was had by all.
