It may seem like a simplistic cause, but I am trying to "bring back bowling" to my hometown in rural southern Alberta. We have reached the semifinals in this year's Aviva Community Fund Competition, but we are a community of 3500 people, mostly seniors, and this competition relies on online votes. We could use some extra support in the way of votes for this bid to revitalize our town. I envision this as a public space that is about much more than just bowling... it should be a place for people to gather, socialize, have fun, and exchange ideas. I want to include a space just for youth, and an indoor playground for young children. This is just the beginning, but it is the beginning of a dream... Thank you for caring!  http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf17034
