Rotary raises $4,900 for CASA

Mil­ford Rotary Club, led by "team coach" Doug Knott, recently raised $4,930 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hampshire.

The ninth annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake Rotary Chal­lenge was an evening of fun, fellowship, bowling and helping a great local charity.

"It’s incredible that each and every year, the Rotaries in our area come togeth­er for a night of friendly competition to raise money to support our mission of providing children with a one-on-one mentor," BBBS development coordinator James Carroll said. "This year did not disappoint, as six dif­ferent Rotaries came out for a night of bowling and fun.

"After all the pins were knocked down and the smoke cleared, the members of the Rotary Club of Mil­ford were the champions. We are incredibly thankful for all the support. Next year, we hope to see everybody out bowling for a cause once again."

Paula Telage, the Milford Rotary team’s "head cheer­leader," said, "Although we were the champions that night, the real champions are the folks at the Big Brothers Big Sisters; what they do day in and day out is amazing work."

The other wonderful Rotary clubs participating this year included Hol­lis/Brookline, Merrimack, Nashua West, Nashua and the Souhegan Valley Happy Hour Club.
