FEBRUARY 19, 2019: Tickets are now available for our April 27th bowling event. They are still only $18 for two people to bowl together. Anyone 16 years and older, regardless of bowling ability, is welcome and our event is a lot of fun with great door prizes, raffles and 50/50 drawings. If you want a ticket or if you want to get a group of friends together to bowl with you, let us know. If you sell 11 tickets, we will give you ticket #12 for FREE! Also, we now have some cute, letter-sized flyers that can be posted to advertise our event. It features a team of bowlers in vintage clothing, but they have dog heads! Pretty funny. If you would like to help us post flyers or if you would like tickets, or any other information, please call Nancy at (517)782-0613.
