Out and About - Battle of the Businesses

The Garden Center in Alexandria was the site for the “Battle of the Businesses” fundraiser for the Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce Friday night.

The event offers an opportunity for local businesses to participate in friendly bowling competition, which is stretched over the course of several weeks. Bowlers also have fun by winning “Chamber Bucks” if they roll a strike when a red-colored pin appears as the headpin.

If you have photos of a Douglas County event for “Out and About,” e-mail them to or drop them off at the newspaper office at 225 7th Avenue East, Alexandria.
