 At Warinanco Ice Skating Center, Nov. 24

ROSELLE, NJ – Come to Warinanco Ice Skating Center on Saturday, Nov. 24,
at 3:30 p.m. and join in the excitement as the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders presents the “Thanksgiving Broom Bowl Challenge,” a combination of
the games of broomball and bowling.

“Come to the skating center for some family fun and let your children try their luck at our version of broom bowling,” said Freeholder Chairwomen Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Union County Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. “After the Broom Bowl Challenge, sit by the fire and warm up with a snack and cup of hot chocolate from the snack bar.”

Children four through 17 years of age who are competing in the challenge will be divided into three age groups. The first-place winner in each age group will receive
a prize.

Regular admission and skate rental fees do not apply to this event, but there is a $2.00 registration fee per participant. There is no public skating during this event. Thanks to Linden Lanes for their support and donation of supplies for this event.
