An Evening Of Fun Helps Fund A Season
Oskaloosa, Iowa – The purr of a lawnmower and the smell of fresh cut grass. That season may seem like a distant dream, but that is the season that the Mahaska County Recreation Foundation is looking forward to.
On Friday night, bowlers packed Mahaska Bowl to help raise funds to keep those mowers in gear, preparing the soccer and ball fields for us to enjoy on those spring and summer days.
Fourteen teams helped make up the bowling field this year for the 4th annual MCRF tournament. With 8 bowlers per team, and many others on hand to spectate and cheer, it was a full house.There were approximately 200 people on hand that helped to raise nearly $5,000 for the Lacey Recreation Complex.
Lane sponsors this year were, Bate’s Funeral Chapel, Shinn Brokerage, Inc., Clow Valve, Garland Van Arkel Langkamp Funeral Chapel, Gatton Realty, HyVee, Osky Foods , MidWestOne, Robert Auld Investments, Oskaloosa Vision Center, Edward Jones – Austin Norris, and Kelderman.
