Children K-12 Invited to Bowl with Jeff Rec

The Jefferson Township Recreation Department is partnering with Sparta Lanes to provide another winter/spring bowling program for Jefferson Township students in Kindergarten (5 year olds) through 12th graders.  Join the team at Sparta Lanes at 83 Woodport Road in Sparta every Thursday beginning on Thursday, February 15 at 4:30 pm for this fun-filled 10-week program that runs through April 26 (no bowling on April 5 due to Spring break).  

Each week, bowlers will play two games,  staff will be available for questions, the Pro Shop will be open for any participant needing assistance with equipment, and each bowler will also be given a Jefferson bowling team t-shirt to wear each week.  

The cost per bowler will be $70 for the 10-week program; and there is an option to have a meal included at Sparta Lanes for an additional $27.50 ($2.75 per week) for a total of $97.50.  The meal would include a small drink with a hot dog or chicken nuggets each Thursday during each of the 10 weeks of the program.
