We had FUN!

Highland Park had our first every Friday Fun Night July 13th and it was a SUCCESS!!

Many members, family, friends and neighbours came to partake in the fun, grab a bite to eat, a drink, and bowl.  We took a break from the norm and added in some wacky rules – like bowling with your wrong hand, through the legs, blindfolded, and double jacks, to name a few.  Some were more successful than others.

We gave out some great prizes donated by our wonderful sponsors, as well as local businesses: Barley Mow, Clocktower, Pure Kitchen, Pure Yoga, Shoppers Drug Mart, David’s Tea, Churchills and Baker Street Cafe.

Big thanks to everyone who helped make the night a huge success!

Stay tuned for our next Friday Fun Night!
