Midway Lions host Snow Bowl for Sussex Consortium students

December 31, 2017

The Midway Lions Club held its Annual Snow Bowl event at Milford Bowling Lanes for students at the Sussex Consortium.

The Lions have been hosting similar events for the Consortium since 2002. All of the students and staff look forward to the Snow Bowl each year. Milford Bowling lanes donates use of the lanes to the students and staff, and the Lions Club provides everyone with food and beverages.

"This is definitely one day that all of our students look forward to each year," said Vivian Bush, Sussex Consortium principal. "They get to enjoy some friendly competition with each other, and get to spend time with their friends who they may not always get to see during the day."

Students are divided up in age groups from kindergarten to age 21.

"It's a really fun day for all of our students," said Trish Wilson, a Sussex Consortium teacher. "The Lions Club and Milford Bowling provided the necessities for the day, and the students definitely brought the fun!"

The Sussex Consortium is a county-wide program within the Cape Henlopen School District. The program serves over 280 students from birth to age 21 in seven buildings throughout the district. The program includes the Sussex County part of the Delaware Autism Program, in addition to Intensive Learning Center classrooms and an Early Childhood Education program for the Cape Henlopen School District residents.
