Charity proposal

Ann Betts and Les PowellAfter 18 years together, Brentwood Bowling Club members Ann Betts and Les Powell are celebrating Valentine’s Day by announcing their engagement.

They plan to tie the knot in early April and hope the occasion will inspire relatives, friends, and well-wishers to dig deep for charity. Instead of a traditional wedding gift list, they’re inviting donations to three good causes close to their hearts, including the local hospital where Les has recently undergone lifesaving surgery.
