The Chattanooga-area Knights of Columbus Family Bowling League celebrated its fifth season with a recent dinner at which the 133-person league presented a $2,500 donation to the Maclellan Shelter for Families operated by the Chattanooga Community Kitchen. COO Jimmy Turner and program director Kathy Long represented the Community Kitchen and spoke at the dinner. The league that began in the fall of 2014 with a small group of bowlers and a $350 gift to the shelter has grown to a 10-week spring and fall entity representing five Knights of Columbus councils, eight Catholic churches and other churches in the area. It includes adults and children and will resume this spring at Spare Time Hixson. Anyone interested can email league coordinator John Sopko at firstname.lastname@example.org.
