This painting on the wall at Thunder Rolls Bowling Center depicts a group of marines posing for a picture. It was painted by Nini Shroyer at the bowling alley for the upcoming Bowl for Veterans event slated for noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The proceeds of the day will benefit Bowlers to Veterans Link, which provides military veterans with access to sports, recreation and the arts.

After a one-year hiatus, veterans will once again benefit from an event at Thunder Rolls Bowling Center this Veteran’s Day. The local bowling alley, 900 Industrial Lane, hosted a Bowl for Veterans event in 2010 to raise money for the non-profit charity organization Bowlers to Veterans Link (BVL) and was successful. The nearly $3200 raised by the alley that day was the ninth-most by a 16-lane bowling alley in the country. But according to Thunder Rolls employee Chris Runyan, the turnout was not as good as hoped.
