“Say No to Drugs – Say Yes to Bowling!”
- Terrace Lanes Bowling Center will kick off the “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” program on June 1 in an ongoing effort to provide local area students with wholesome recreational activities. “It’s a healthy, wholesome program for students of all ages, that will give them a free activity all summer long at our family-friendly bowling center,” stated Beth Sleek, Terrace Lanes owner.
Homer Sleek, Terrace Lanes owner, added, “We believe it’s an investment in our community’s future. Bowling is the perfect sport. Everyone can play it and no one sits the bench. Size and strength are not a factor. We have bumper bowling for children as young as two years of age and facilities for disabled bowlers. Bowling is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. We will also be offering free bowling instruction for the participants if desired. We believe this program will give the kids something to do this summer that is positive and constructive.”
Sleek said, “Here is how the program works. We give each student a “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” card. The card entitles the student to one free game of bowling (including shoe rental) Every day during the summer (June, July and August). That’s it. There is nothing to buy and very few restrictions. Cards are good six days a week — from 1 to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Students need only to present their student card when they come to the bowling center and they may bowl one free game.”
In order to do this, Terrace Lanes is distributing 9,000 special student identification cards to area schools. Participating schools are: Berlin, North Star, Meyersdale, Rockwood, Shanksville, Turkeyfoot, Somerset Christian School and St. Peter’s Catholic School.
“Kid safety is the goal of this event. We offer kids a safe place to enjoy a sport during their most vulnerable years,” Sleek emphasized.
