The Iola chapter of the United States Bowling Congress caught up on some old business from the past several years Saturday morning at Country Lanes bowling alley.
The Iola USBC gathered to honor the winners of their annual Brighten Veterans Lives leagues where bowlers from across the state raise money for hospitals that serve veterans in Wichita, Topeka and Leavenworth and other programs that benefit service members.
This year, Kansas bowlers contributed $12.337.36. Bowlers participating in BVL leagues donated a dollar to compete. Iolas local chapter raised $166 through league dues and another $390 collected during the BVL tournament held Nov. 11-17 in 2018.
