A ginormous "thank you" to you, Bill, for supporting the NCCC's efforts, as you always do! We had a fantastic time and the Bowl-a-thon was hugely successful much in part due to the efforts of all of The Board memebers, the bowlers, and Chamber member, Alice Lenna, from New City Bowl. We look forward to our next event on April 22nd, The StreetFair! Follow us on Facebook to receive new information and updates. On a personal note, thank you one and all for the wonderful birthday surprise. I totally appreciate everyone's heartfelt well wishes...Thanks! Roxy Perrone Board Member, NCCC
