Pallie Berry joined the WDCAWBA board in 1985. Since that time, she has served on nearly all of the association’s committees and has received the Director of the Month Award several times. She also has earned the WDCAWBA President’s Award.

Pallie was responsible for the association receiving its own flag, and she assisted in obtaining a trademark for “Suzy Bowler.” Always willing to help leagues and individual bowlers with their questions, she even helped a duckpin league while it converted to tenpins.

On the state association level, Pallie served as a delegate for two years prior to joining the state board in 1991. She assisted the state in receiving its own flag, founded the Virginia State Women’s 500 Club, and has served as president since its inception.

On the national level, Pallie has served as a delegate to the WIBC Annual Meeting for 12 years and has been responsible for VSWBA and WDCAWBA luncheons during this convention.

On the lanes, she has a high game of 263 and had perfect attendance for 25 years in the Ladies Classic league during its existence.

For many years, Pallie Berry has provided dedicated service to her association and its members—in public and often behind the scenes. For her efforts, she is being justly rewarded with a position in the Washington, D.C. Area Women’s Bowling Association Hall of Fame.
