Bowl your way to exercise -- and fun

Looking for a way to stretch out your legs, get a little exercise and have some fun?

Look no further than the newly renovated All Saints Bowling Center at 26 Broadway.

The Council on Aging’s weekly bowling group meet at the center on Monday mornings.

Although the center is often used by students from St. Joseph School of All Saints Parish, there is plenty of room for senior citizens to join in on the fun.

The bowling center is in the basement of the school, just off Lafayette Square.
