Microphone for Announcements
When you wish to make an announcement, please indicate your intention by raising your hand and someone will come to you with a microphone.
To work effectively, the microphone needs to be held very close...within an inch of your mouth.
We are very lucky to have the microphones available so that everyone can hear important announcements. Do not be bashful in using them!
Bocce Makes a Big Comeback in Ludlow
Through the dedication of David Almond and other members of the United Church of Ludlow, bocce, the Italian lawn bowling game, has made a dramatic return to Ludlow.
Every Tuesday evening, from 6 PM until darkness at Veterans Memorial Park in Ludlow, a large group of bowlers patiently (most of the time) see how close they can come to the pallina (a small white ball that acts as the center of bocce scoring).
Almond maps out two bocce courts for the various teams to use. United Church members also provide free lemonade to keep the bowlers hydrated.
Almond noted that "the people need these refreshments to ensure that they can aim the balls at the pallina and keep track of their scores". Information about the bocce games is available at 802-228-2414.
