Pins for Patriots helps local veterans

A round of bowling on Saturday at the Tangerine Bowl helped support local veterans.

Quincy residents attended the 1st annual Pins for Patriots event.

Each bowler paid $15 to participate.

Money raised goes toward three local veteran groups.

These groups include the Illinois Veterans Home Activity fund, the Tristate Warrior Outreach, and Fishing For Freedom, Quincy.

This event was created by Christy Miller and Dave Ulrich.

The event began with a ceremony to honor the veterans that were in attendance along with a singing of the national anthem.
