Nearly 50 youths in grades K-8 took part in the first Turkey Bowl hosted by St. Patrick School and the London High School football program. The event took place under the lights on Nov. 22 at London City Schools’ Bowlus Field. Participants were divided into three age groups to test their football skills in on-field games. London High school football players served as coaches. Organizers collected donations of food for local food pantries as admission.
