Bowling alley will close

After several years of not having a bowling alley, it was great when one opened two years ago.

Dear Editor:

After several years of not having a bowling alley, it was great when one opened two years ago.

Unfortunately, it will be closing at the end of June. Why? Lack of support from the people of Summerland.

There were some leagues  during the winter  but they were small  and not enough to support this  business.

As mentioned to me the other day by another bowler, this was the winter activity I enjoyed. And it is close to home. Now what can I do?

We also bowled. Hosts Gayle and Gordon made the bowling alley  a friendly, fun place to come too.

Not all bowling alleys are as bright and clean as ours. This was evidenced by the hard work they did  before opening two years ago.

This activity will be missed by those who enjoyed it.

I. and R. Taylor
