  • Noah's Friends Bowling League:

    • Noah's Friends Bowling League is open to any person with I/DD 16 and up. We currently bowl around 30 Sundays out of the year.
    • Bowlers pay $2 each week and Noah's Friends matches their $2. Bowlers arrive at the bowling alley between 6:30 and 7:00 to pay and get their shoes. Then we have about 10 minutes to warm up before bowling two games.
    • The scores are kept for each game and are used to determine league scoring.
    • We have a bowling banquet once a year to award the highest scores, averages, pins over average, etc for the two bowling seasons during the year.
    • A select number of bowlers are also chosen to go to the state Special Olympics each year to compete against other bowlers across the state.
  • BINGO:

    • The Arc sponsors a BINGO night usually once per month for adults (16 and up) with I/DD. BINGO is held at The SPOT, another United Way Agency and everyone wins!
  • Dances:

    • The Arc, partnering with The Women of The Moose, sponsors 6 annual dances, usually for certain holidays or seasonal changes, throughout the year.
    • These dances are for adults (16 and up) with I/DD.
    • They are held at The Moose Lodge from 7 pm until 9 pm.
  • Tobs Outings:

    • The Arc sponsors group outings for adults (16 and up) with I/DD to go out and see our hometown Wilson Tobs at 10 games during the baseball season.
    • We typically go to the Thirsty Thursday games where soft drinks are 1/2 price.
