Manchester LBC Up & Running

The Clubhouse installed, A bit of Landscape done, Outside balcony and Greens keeper's ramp builded and the club inside receiving visitors. (50 or more over the last week). The First weeks of Manchester LBC saw a "Sunfest"  invitation to the public, with Youth learning to Bowl.  A major promotion  of Bowls of 30 plus participants was probably the club's "Open House" and now two major Provincial activities have finished.


   The Interclub of 10 teams from all over the province saw great greens, a kitchen staff greeting and fine weather as did the Provincial Senior Playdown last Saturday.  Now, after all the work by a few club executives, everything can go on by its self.  Although we expect workers for volunteer, we all feel the need for a break. Thank you Dave, John, Richard, Linda,Betty, Ed,Ron, Jerry and town of Riverview staff who for the last month have been so occupied with the installation. jjt
