Phase Two - Bring Back Bowling to TSB

In the fall of 2013, board members voted to fund Phase Two of the bowling alley project, which would make the alley accessible to many TSB students utilizing wheelchairs and walkers. Renovation plans were drawn up by an architect to create easy access and ensure safety codes are met while maintaining the the look and history of the lanes. In October of 2014 the renovated alley was reopened for student use. We would like to express our appreciation to our Friends at PARKS, the Murfreesboro Breakfast Rotary Club and many additional supporters who worked to fund this multi-year endeavor. The children of TSB are very fortunate to have this remarkable facility. We appreciate your support!
