Everyone is encouraged to stop by the Prairie Imperial Bowl at Craigmont this Saturday, June 22 during the June Picnic celebration.
The bowling alley will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday for people to stop in and look over the renovation progress which includes new pinsetting machines and overlays for the alleys.
There will be a raffle and a donation jar set up during the open house with funds going toward the renovation expenses.
A grand opening after all the work is done is tentatively set for mid-July with free bowling and lessons available from machine installer Russ Hunt, who is a professional bowler. Hopefully everyone will plan to participate once the date is set.
