Interagency said, "Bowling is always one of our
more attended activities for the youth so we
know they enjoy coming out for it."

younger kids," said Materi.
Stephanie Fossheim said, "I am just dropping
off my niece, step-daughter, and a cousin to
enjoy some time at the bowling alley. The girls
have taken part in many of the activities offered
through Youth Interagency. I think its fantastic, it

Edson Bowling Alley. When asked what he
thought about youth having this kind of
opportunity, Edwin said, "It is awesome to see
the kids out doing something together, it is a lot
more fun than some people may think. I do a lot
of bowling myself on the Sunday night league.
You meet new people and have some laughs and
fun together, you can challenge yourself by your
scores, or just play the game and have fun."
A few of the youth bowling were just in town
visiting over the break. Stephanie Reid said, "I
am here with two young girls from out of town
that are visiting so this is our first time and I
must say I am very impressed that there is such a
group that does this sort of thing for the youth.
This is a great way for kids to mingle and meet
others, they have a great thing happening here."
