Grant helps bowling alley grow



The grant money covered only a portion of the cost, but it gave his business a positive boost, McLaughlin said. 

“It’s helping businesses out in the community to stay viable,” he said. “In today’s economy, some businesses can’t afford to do upgrades for what they need to do, and these grants do help out.”

McLaughlin believes things are looking up for Lucky Strike Lanes.

“Hopefully, this fall is good with our fall leagues, our kids’ league and short-season leagues, and (hopefully) more families will come in and bring in their younger kids and utilize the bumpers more.”
