Naval Station Bowling Center brought a little early holiday cheer to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam during its Leon Day (Noel spelled backwards) event held July 25. Games were only $1.25 per person, and all lanes were filled within the first hour with people excited to celebrate Christmas in July.

“This is our first time hosting Leon Day,” Eric Zotter, bowling alley manager, said. “The crowd is probably larger than most that we’ve had.”

Lacy Rueschenberg, active-duty Navy spouse, attended the event with her two children.

“It has been very fun,” she said. “We all dressed up in our Christmas gear and we’re jamming out to Christmas tunes.”

In between games, customers could visit Military Family Support Center’s (MFSC) table. MFSC’s mission of educating and caring for families was a natural tie-in to this activity aimed and parents and kids.

“Today we have a game here where we allow everyone to learn more about our center,” Charito Rivera, prevention ad education specialist at MFSC, said.

To play the game, participants spun a wheel and answered a simple trivia question about MFSC to win a coloring book filled with information for families.
