Senior bowling season opens Lively ladies to put on a show

There was much to admire when senior bowling resumed Tuesday, September 15 at American Legion Hall. The alleys had been re-finished, there was a new rug in the reception area, and there is now an electric chair lift from the alleys to the main floor.

Legion Commander Mike Loriz has even promised us an electric heater to ward off the chill on Tuesday afternoons.

Bob Rescigno, who has been our coach, scorekeeper and pin boy since he was able to secure the use of the alleys for us in 2004, was disappointed in both the attendance that first day and in the personal scores. “They [the bowlers] were off their mark,” he said. “They’re a year older. But Phil O’Neill has his right hook under control and Dorothy Bloom is definitely out of the gutter.”

Senior bowling is regularly scheduled for Tuesdays at 2 p.m. We play just two games at $2 a game (a real bargain!) and you will be home before dark.

“There is such a good feeling,” Bob continued. “The seniors are really anxious to play. They cheer their hearts out when you make a strike. But we do need more bowlers.” 

Where were you, Audrey and Momma P ?

The show on October 4 is also a fundraiser. Dorothy, a strong proponent of surprise, will say only that she and her lively ladies are “dusting off their grass skirts.”
