Rimbey FCSS is treating residents to an afternoon of bowling during their anniversary party.

On April 23, the first 40 people at Striker’s Alley will enjoy free bowling and celebrate FCSS’s, 40 years of community involvement.

“We chose bowling because it’s right here in our community and owned and operated by families in our community,” said Peggy Makofka, with Rimbey FCSS.

“It’s a fun activity that the whole family can do! COVID has been tough on businesses and on families and we wanted to give back to our community as we celebrate 40 years of operating in Rimbey and area.”

June Rudulier with Striker’s Alley agreed, adding that they are always excited to be involved in community events.

“Bowling brings people together to relax and have a good time and sometimes a little rivalry brings people closer together.”

“We’ve done big events before whether it’s staff Christmas parties or birthday parties or the Big Brothers and Sisters bowl-a-thon. We are open for birthday parties, staff parties, family reunions, individuals and families.”

Rudulier bowls in a senior league in Rimbey at the bowling alley.

“I started bowling as a teenager, back when we had to travel to Ponoka to bowl. I have bowled throughout my adult life, and have enjoyed entering tournaments and bowling in other centers. I think keeping active, socializing and just having fun is the best part of bowling.”

The FCSS 40th-anniversary party is on April 23 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. and is open to all ages and levels of bowlers.

“Bowling is great fun and good exercise and anybody can do it, at any skill level. Everybody has a good time bowling,” said Rudulier.
