PLBC receives grant from Memorial Fund
PLBC received great news in the new year when the Memorial Fund awarded the club a $500 grant for repairs to their mower and roller.
Over the last 3 years Portland members have made a substantial effort to improve their green and establish a consistent maintenance schedule but they were hampered by limited funds and manpower. Financial help has come from both the Memorial Fund and Bowls USA and this winter a newly appointed park manager has offered some assistance with general maintenance.
The Memorial Fund is an independent arm of Bowls USA. Its mission is to provide assistance to both players and clubs in any way that promotes the sport of lawn bowls. Donations to the MF are tax deductible and can be directed toward a specific cause.
The enthusiastic members are grateful for all the help and looking forward to better bowling.
The History Of PLBC
A Productive but Cold Winter Meeting
Getting organized for 2017 was so important to club members they braved the record-setting snow event for the first meeting of the year. With 8" of snow on the green and the clubhouse thermostat showing about 8 degrees, plans were made and committees were organized to get a jump start on the 2017 season. With the good news of the club receiving another $500 in grant funding (see above) and PP&R committing to help with mower repairs the consensus is we are off to a good start.
(Details of meeting minutes to come.)
The best decisions of the meeting were to move outdoors into the sunshine and to hold the next meeting at a neighborhood pub!
