Check us out at the heartland beat 10 Annual Heartland Chapter Bowl-a-thon th By Diane Forbes, American Public Works Association As the heat wave broke over Kansas City, more than 50 members, sponsors and friends laced up their bowling shoes and bowled their way into a fun-filled night. It was the Heartland Chapters 10th Annual Bowl-a-thon and Heartland Chapter community service event held on Thursday, August 4, 2011. Pins crashed and some balls found their way to the gutters but with the support of a cheering section all that bowled and those that didn’t, had a great time. Some skilled and some lucky, players took home some pretty fantastic bowling pin trophies.
