BOWLING ALLEY RENEWAL
RESTORATION OF A LOCAL FAVORITE
Kenilee Lanes has been a part of the Norwalk community for more than 55 years. CLI wants to keep it going and become a part of that history.
CLI, has started working with bowling alley owner Dwight Tkach to make his 14 E. Seminary St. business an even bigger part of the community. That meant a makeover project for Kenilee Lanes, including replacing electrical equipment, light fixtures, taking out the ceiling to expose the beams and re-painting.
More extensive renovations are planned for the future, including making the business wheel-chair accessible, adding a ramp and a downstairs restroom and possibly replacing the front of the business to be an open, glass front.
“It was a light remodel, but we believe it is a big visual impact,” CLI CEO John Schwartz said. “With the white, open ceiling and 55 new lights the space is a lot brighter.”
SAME GREAT SPACE
REVAMPED THE OLD AND MADE IT NEW
That doesn’t mean the bowling alley everyone knows and loves has changed.
“We’re keeping it as a bowling alley and will continue to work with Dwight,” Schwartz said.
“He still owns the alley; we just want to kind of put our little take on it and then provide jobs for people with disabilities actually working in the alley. We’re definitely open for leagues and open bowling, just like it’s always been for the community since 1962 — we just want to be part of that.”
The adults with disabilities served by CLI will help “whatever job you can imagine in a bowling alley,” aside from those which require special training, such as with the pin-placement machines.
