The Bowler’s Ed equipment will showcase to the parent the range of activities being taught in the school to offer all kids a variety of sport options. Utilize a portion of the proceeds from that day, week, or month to support the PTO/PTA group.
Every community has events going on sometimes weekly, especially during the summer time. Find out what events are designed for local businesses to showcase what they have to offer.
