Youth Leagues set for Villa

    The new Villa Lanes will conduct Youth League bowling registration on two dates: Friday, Sept. 9, 6 to 8 p.m., and Saturday, Sept. 10, 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
    Decatur's long time bowling center closed three years ago. Local business men purchased the business recently and hired Mike Miller as the new manger. Renovations have been ongoing and the upgraded house is slated for a Sept. 1 opening.
    Youth divisions will include Bumper, Bantam, and Junior, ages 5 to 20.
    Cost this year for Bumper league will be $5 for two games. Cost for Bantam and Junior leagues will be $7 and will cover three games.
    Sanction fee for Bantam and Junior divisions will be $17.
