Today was going to be an exciting day for the Warfordsburg Senior Center. The seniors were hosting the Juniata Valley seniors for a Wii bowling rematch. On September 18, the Warfordsburg seniors went to the Juniata Valley senior center for their first Wii bowling tournament, which ended in a loss of 80 pens. The Warfordsburg team won the crying towel for its trophy. For this tournament, Bob McDonald made a special traveling trophy for the winner. The Warfordsburg seniors arrived early and did some exercises to help strengthen their muscles for bowling. Refreshments of cheese and crackers, deer bologna, beer bologna, Danish and coffee were set up to welcome the Juniata team. The team arrived around 9:45 a.m. and the game began.
