WEST MILTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The bowling alley on South Miami Street in West Milton has seen better days, but its new owners are determined to bring it back to life with a hand from some local students.
The student Habitat for Humanity group at Milton-Union High School heard the building was under new ownership and decided to ask if they could help add a little color to the place. When the owners said yes, the students grabbed their brushes and paint cans to make a difference.
The project was postponed for several months because of weather, but Saturday morning, volunteers took advantage of the sunny weather to start painting.
“The weather has played a huge factor because we’ve been wanting to do it earlier and try to get it done during the school year. And then with all the rain and the flash floods we’ve had it’s been kind of hard. But today we got a great break in the weather and today is a beautiful day,” said Joshua Simpson, volunteer with Habitat for Humanity.
The group of volunteers held a bowl-a-thon to raise money for supplies.
