In recognition of Senior Appreciation Month, Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale Village, Far Rockaway) hosted a free senior bowling event on September 20, 2021 at Bowl 360 in Ozone Park, which was attended by dozens of seniors from across his district.
"It was a great joy for me to host a free senior bowling event for the elders in our community. It warms my heart to see them so active and vibrant and enjoying themselves," Sanders said. "This is one of the best parts of my job. Everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you to Danny and Shelly Mohabir, the owners of Bowl 360, for sponsoring the event."
For some attendees, it was their first time bowling, and they were excited about the experience, while other more seasoned bowlers enjoyed the thrill of the competition.
Participants had to provide proof of complete COVID-19 vaccination and mask wearing and social distancing were observed.
