The Muskoka Lawn Bowling Club was pleased to learn that it was granted a Town of Bracebridge Community Grant for $500. The funds will be used towards constructing an equipment shed for the new facility.
The club is grateful for the invaluable encouragement and support from the Town of Bracebridge. Sally Mills, President of the Muskoka Lawn Bowling Club said that, “The club has been fortunate to partner with the Town of Bracebridge’s Recreation Department to offer “Introduction to Lawn Bowling” programs for all ages.
The lawn bowling club completed construction of its bowling green in the fall of 2016. The facility is located on the grounds of the Muskoka Highlands Golf Links on South Monck Drive in Bracebridge. Mills explained that, “the new grass requires time to become well-established and able to withstand the wear and tear of lawn bowling. We are still working on the area surrounding the green, and plan to construct the equipment shed before our Grand Opening on July 8th.”
Mills explained that, “We are offering those participants who wish to become full members in the Muskoka Lawn Bowling Club an opportunity to deduct their “Introduction to Lawn Bowling” program fee from the membership fee. The adult membership fee will be $250 per year, but due to our shortened first season, the membership fee will only be $150 for 2017.”
“Introduction to Lawn Bowl” programs, membership details, and more information is available on the Muskoka Lawn Bowling Club website at www.muskokabowls.ca, or by contacting Sally Mills at 705-646-0086.
