Friends of Collier Lanes

Hello Everyone,

Claude Lafnear here, many of you know me as Jr. I am the Oxford High School Varsity high school Boys and Girls bowling coach. I also am a longtime bowler at Collier Lanes. I have bowled through 3 generations of the 4 generations of ownership. They aren’t just bowling proprietors they are part of my family. As we all know the State of Michigan’s response to the Covid 19 pandemic has severally crippled the bowling center and the Collier family’s ability to generate an income. The earlier 200 + days they were closed from March to October was devastating and just as they started to rebound the rug was pulled out again. They need our help!!! I am asking anyone that has open or league bowled, partied, shot pool, thrown darts, held fundraisers, had birthday parties to step up and help us. I’m asking you to donate $1.00 for every year you’ve bowled at Colliers. My family as an example,

  JR-50 years = $50

Karen – 45 years = $45

Steven- 25 years = $25

Heather- 23 years = $23

Tom – 5 years = $5.00

Total Lafnear Family = $148

 I have a few people helping and we will be at Collier Lanes on Sunday the 20th of December to collect your donations. We will be there from noon to 3 pm. I will have a safe drop box for you to drive by and drop it off. Put your donation in an envelope with or without your name. You can feel free to donate more or less just please donate. If you need to write a check make it out to Collier Lanes. If you would like mail it to:
