Midway Lanes gives to Guard Foundation

Jim Mellon, owner of Midway Lanes in Mandan, presented a donation of $5,000 for the North Dakota National Guard Foundation on Dec. 19 at the Guard’s headquarters in Bismarc. Accepting the donation on behalf of the foundation was the North Dakota adjutant general, Maj. Gen. David Sprynczynatyk.

“We are very grateful to the great businesses, agencies and organizations that continue to support our National Guard soldiers, airmen and their families supported by the North Dakota National Guard Foundation,” said Sprynczynatyk. “And today, we also thank Mr. Mellon and his staff for again organizing a fun day of free bowling, food and door prizes for all military members, veterans and their families.

Including this contribution, Midway Lanes has donated more than $11,000 in the last few years to the Guard’s foundation.

“We enjoy supporting our military members, Veterans and their families,” said Mellon. “This is a small way of demonstrating our gratitude for everything our military does on behalf of our state and nation.”
