FHNC Resident Story: Ellen Usher ‘Bowling Legend’

Fort Hudson Senior returns to bowling  One of the best things about our Resident Outings, is that everyone has a chance to bond in a different way.   This was exactly the case, when the Activity Dept. took Ellen Usher bowling.  Arriving at Broadway Lanes,  Ellen was greeted like a rock star!  Unbeknownst to the group, Ellen is a local bowling legend.

She and her late husband Ken were avid bowlers.  Ellen ran the 50/50 for league nights at the Fort Edward Bowl, and she and Ken traveled the country (including Vegas, Tulsa, & Jacksonville) as part of her ‘bowling tour’.

Ellen had a wonderful time  reminiscing, and her peers and staff were happy hearing the stories and learning more about her.  It is fun to imagine Ellen in her heyday…throwing those strikes!

Special thanks to Broadway Lanes for making this outing possible.  What a special day for all involved~
