The secret to making our club a success year after year has been and will always be our members who give back. In the beginning, our members volunteered hours to build our first club house (now bowls house), make umbrella tables, make lane numbers and markers, make score boards, raise money, clean the green and of course instruct new members on the game. Year after year, the members of the Dartmouth Lawn Bowls Club volunteer their time and expertise. Just think, we would not have successful New Year Levee’s, BBq’s, tournaments, Christmas Parties, instructing new members and regular club play without those who dedicate their time to making us the best club in Atlantic Canada.
We have a new sign on the front of the club house

After an if-y afternoon, it turned into a beautiful evening for Sundae Sunday (July 27th). Members of the St.Mary's Lawn Bowls Club joined with Dartmouth members for a fun evening of bowlling then making ice cream sundaes. In all, 39 members (27 Dartmouth, 12 St.Mary's) had a great social evening. An invitation to join St.Mary's for a fun evening at their club is forthcoming.
