Madison Southern fund-raiser
The Madison Southern High School bowling teams are holding a fundraiser at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Anyone can bowl for two hours for $10, plus $2.50 for shoe rental if needed. There will also be a silent auction.
The funds generated will go toward meeting expenses for the Eagles’ boys and girls bowling teams.
A personal note
I was not able to prepare this column in time for it to be included in Monday’s Register as usual.
As many of you know, I had heart surgery on Oct. 22, and I am now recuperating at home with excellent care from my wife, Maggie.
I very much appreciate the prayers and get well wishes on my behalf from members of the bowling community.
Thanks also to Nathan Hutchinson for allowing me to wait until I had regained sufficient strength to prepare this column, and for saving the space to run it later in the week.
Starting next week, I expect to return to the regular Monday publication date with the help of the Galaxy league secretaries Beverly Shearer and Lewis Jones Jr.
