Members of the Burbank Kiwanis Aktion Club were on a roll Sunday as they gathered at the Pickwick Bowl for the club's fourth annual bowl-a-thon fundraiser.
Aktion Club members, participants and guests were welcomed to Pickwick by the organizing committee made up of Jan Loporchio, Tony and Donna Wade and Stephanie Franklin.
Following a hot-dog lunch, Aktion Club members took to the lanes to compete for trophies and to raise funds. The proceeds from Sunday's event are used for travel and registration costs for club members who represent Burbank at the annual Aktion Convention and Camp.
Chartered in 2004, the Burbank Aktion Club is made up of adults who live with developmental disabilities. The local chapter is one of more than 200 international Aktion Clubs, first organized in 1987 in Florida.
With the assistance of fellow Kiwanians, the Aktion Club concept spread throughout Florida and eventually the world. The Aktion Club became an officially sponsored program of Kiwanis International in October 2000.
