March 28 – Wii Bowling League starts – The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association has a bowling league. Seniors can enter a team of four or sign up as an individual and be assigned to a team. Wii bowling is not physically demanding. It is a video game by Nintendo and can be played from a standing or sitting position. People can even play while sitting on a chair or walker. There are two lanes and 8 people play at a time. The laughter is infectious. It’s a great way to get involved. Players use the remote control to mimic the bowling actions. Individual and team scores are kept. Your team name might appear on the trophy! Teams are being formed now. No experience is necessary. You just need to enjoy having fun and meeting new people. Call Community Care today at 613-476-7493 and sign up to play in the next league which will launch March 28th. www.communitycareforseniors.org
