I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for and our prayers must go to the many still suffering from the wrath of hurricane Sandy.

Christmas will be here too soon so let’s stay in shape and keep our sanity by bowling at our local center. Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!
