News Tidbits – After many years, the Gennaro’s are thanking the people of Wawa, Dubreuilville, Hawk Junction, White River, and many other surrounding communities for their patronage. “We would especially like to thank all of our league members throughout the years. You were like family to us, we shared many fun times together, had many laughs, and made special friendships along the way. Thanks to all the staff we had throughout the years that contributed to making the bowling alley a success. We wish Jamie and Jennifer all the best in their new business venture and we look forward to seeing all our friends again this coming bowling season!”

The Roxy Bowling Centre has been sold to Jamie and Jennifer Boylan, who are very excited to be the new owners of the Roxy Bowling Centre, “We hope you all make many new memories as it sounds like there have been many great ones made with the Gennaro family. We do not have a concrete date set yet for re-grand opening, but we are working as hard as we can to get it open asap for the community once again we will inform everyone once we get a little closer.”
