“Heroes in Our Midst”

Heroes in Our Midst: A Community Salute to those Who Have Served

Concept:  Create an opportunity to recognize community members who are serving or have served in the military.

Create a display featuring  individuals to honor.  Request that bowlers bring in a brief paragraph about the individual, specifically with respect to their service to our country, as well as copies of photos and awards (it’s best to avoid accepting any original documentation in case of loss). (See suggested press release.)

Display:  Post the honors, photos and memorabilia an existing bulletin board or create a display.  Decorate with American flags provided in the kit or other appropriate art.

Special Event:  Coordinate a tournament with proceeds going to BVL.  Invite members of the community who want to support our nation’s servicemen and women.

Throughout the week:  Display BVL posters and brochures at the control counter and around the center.  Play the BVL National Anthem DVD before the start of leagues.
