Bocce is Back!

Local businesses battle it out to fund van for seniors

A game of rolling balls is the first fundraising step toward getting a senior van rolling.  Swinging Sixties Seniors (211 Ainslie Street) need a van to take them on trips, and Swinging Sixties happens to have a regulation bocce court. These two were put together as inspiration and action to gain community support to raise money for the senior van. Many local businesses were court sponsors: CTown (Graham Avenue), Cheers Thai, Lella Alimentari, Giando on the Water, and more.  Fortunato’s Café, Assembly Member Lentol, Crest Hardware, and The Meat Hook took on team sponsorships.

Game day came and teams from The Meat Hook and Crest Hardware went for the best of three to claim the trophy. The Meat Hook won the first game, and then all took a lunch break.  When play resumed Crest Hardware came back to win both games to become champion!
