It was a Rockin ‘n Rollin night at bowling
Monitor Staff Writer
SEVEN POINTS–Lakeplex Lanes in Seven Points was transformed into
a ‘Sock Hop’ with chamber members and guests in ’50s attire,
black-and-white checkered tablecloths and soda shop decorations,
including 45 rpm records scattered throughout the bowling alley
for the chamber’s new fall fundraiser, Oct. 22.
The inauguration of “A Night In Rock ‘n Roll Alley” was a
success for the Cedar Creek Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.
Guests dined on delicious hamburgers with all the trimmings,
fries, drinks and Dairy Queen ice cream sandwiches.
