After two years, the repetitive thud of bowling balls rolling down long narrow wooden lanes could be heard again at Rose Bowl Lanes in Marshfield on Sunday, Jan. 30, 2022 as The Highground’s 9th Annual Winter Bowl proceeded as “normal”. Putting the “fun” in fundraising, approximately 90 bowlers came together, young and old, Veteran and civilian, to raise $6,099 for The Highground’s 2022 Veterans Retreats.
This event is unique in that it is an annual fundraiser designated strictly for the organization’s Veterans Retreats. The goal of these retreats is to create an atmosphere of camaraderie, peace and relaxation for our Veterans while offering them support, new ideas, workshops and information to help dissipate their burdens and soften their memories.
