One of OCO’s most popular community events and fundraisers, this year’s Bowl-A-Fun brings a party atmosphere with plenty of fun.

The bowling tournament will provide keen competition among the agency’s major sponsors from noon to 2:30 p.m.

“Right afterwards, we’ll get this party started with open bowling, prize drawings, raffles including 50/50, live entertainment, and of course refreshments and a great big cake,” said Diane Cooper-Currier, OCO’s executive director.

Admission to the party is by ticket only, but tickets are free and available at several OCO offices.

“Tickets are going fast, so be sure to get yours before April 1,” Cooper-Currier said.
