On August 14, a group of residents from Weskota Manor Avera took a bus trip to Mitchell Bowling alley to participate in a "bowl off” with a neighboring nursing home.
“At the beginning of summer we started a bowling league with White Lake’s nursing home, Aurora-Brule,” said Samantha Miller, activities assistant at Weskota Manor Avera. “In June, they brought a group or residents to our facility and in July we visited their facility for some friendly bowling competition.”
Both teams in the bowling league vie for the coveted traveling trophy. Miller explained that in both June and July, Aurora-Brule won the prize.  
The August meeting went differently, however, as the two 10-person teams faced off at Village Bowl in Mitchell. 
“We enjoyed an afternoon of bowling, conversations and laughs,” Miller said. “And Weskota Manor Avera proudly brought home the trophy.”
