Seniors tournament Sunday
The monthly seniors tournament will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday. All men and women age 50 or higher are invited to participate in this tournament.

The entry fee is $15 to bowl three games. Cash prizes will be awarded.
Women lead re-organized Lexington association
The Lexington Area Bowling Association (men) and the Lexington Women’s Bowling Association completed a merger in May.
A man was elected to the key position of association manager, but women were elected to all the other association offices including president, first vice-president, second vice-president and sergeant at arms.
Women were also elected to 10 of the 16 positions on the board of directors.
This is believed to be the first merger of a men’s bowling association and a women’s bowling association in Kentucky.
