LYONS, N.J. – The VA Medical Center held a grand re-opening for the bowling alley at its Lyons campus December 13.

The “Stars and Strikes” bowling lanes opened for Veterans who are inpatients with the VA New Jersey Health Care System.

Terrence Kennedy, a health technician with mobile care, entered the contest to name the bowling lanes and came up with the winning entry.

“I wanted to play off of the whole military theme,” Kennedy said.

Kennedy was recognized during the grand opening with a certificate of recognition for his creativity.

Veterans who are inpatients at the East Orange campus will be put on a schedule to use the bowling lanes. The schedules will be organized by recreation services.

Teams of Veterans in organized competitive leagues will also use the lanes for practice.

“We also have teams that compete,” said Laurie Tomaino, Chief of Recreation Services.

Two teams of Veterans from VA New Jersey compete in the Golden Age Games and the National Veterans Wheelchair Games, Tomaino said.
