Lafayette Lanes in Lafayette, Louisiana, closed in late August after 62 years in business. According to the Lafayette Daily Advertiser, the bowling alley recently posted a farewell message on their Facebook page.
“Lafayette Lanes staff and ownership has shared in such great joy and family fun with so many,” the post said. “Our dedicated League Bowlers – some of them who still bowled with us since we have been open – YOU ARE APPRECIATED.”
Hundreds of well-wishers commented on and shared the post, including their own memories of the bowling alley.
