Federation cosmic bowling

The Saline County 4-H Federation is sponsoring an evening of cosmic bowling on Friday, Feb. 16, at Ross Cottom Lanes. All 4-H club members and adult volunteers are invited to join us from 6 to 8 p.m. to bowl a game or two and meet some 4-H members from other counties.

Members are encouraged to increase their club membership by inviting a friend to bowl and to find out about 4-H. Saline County 4-H participants will again be joined by 4-H youth and adults from the other counties in our six-county unit, which include Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Pope and White.

Cost is $3.50 per game, per person. Don't forget to bring additional money for refreshments that evening.

In order for us to have enough lanes reserved, club leaders or individual families must call the Extension office at (618) 252-8391 by today, Feb. 9, to RSVP.
