Keeping up with past and present happenings in a remarkable small town.
Kind of obscure from the outside but inside,a bowling alley,meeting rooms a couple bars and a fantastic kitchen. The attic had basketball goals. I have been a knight for a long time and in Council halls all over but never one as grand as this.Bob Dorcy
I remember when i was little the GREAT Xmas shows they would put on and a present for every kid!!
The bowling alleys have been moved to the Bon Arie Bowling Center,duckpin leagues still exist there
I set pins at KOC(1961). Still remember the pin master, Mike Merran. He always dressed in a suit and smoked a big cigar. I set two allies at a time and was paid seven cents per bowler per game. On a good night I could make $3.00.
Used to be some good teen dances there in late 50's, early 60's.Great pizza at Manna's a few doors down North Street.
The pin masters last name was Murrin. He could be crotchety at times but the pin boys would hop to it when he barked.
I remember my Dad taking me bowling there - duck pins! Great memories from attending many wedding receptions.
