The Special Olympics Bowling Tournament was held March 3–4, 2020 at the AMF Auburn Lanes in Auburn, AL. Several hundred bowlers from all over Lee County participated and had a great time, as always.

The Auburn Civitans provided refreshments and encouragement for the bowlers, parents, and Special Olympics staff both days. It’s always a great time and the bowling was great to watch.
