Panorama photograph of the Digney Pee-Wee Bowling League. Some members are identified as; Ernest Frank "Dig" Digney (back row- far left); Natasha Wiebe (back row-2nd from left); Carol Loew; Cathy Strang; Susan Dunham; Lynne Pemble; Leah Pemble; Karen Proby and Bruce Digney (front row-6th from the left). Andy Digney opened the Digney Bowl on August 19, 1955 and passed the business onto his son Ernest who ran it until his son Bruce Digney took over in 1980. The Digney Bowl was located at 6521 Bonsor Avenue. The bowling league met every Saturday morning at the Digney bowling alley where there were a total of 32 teams (5 children per team) who bowled in shifts since there wasn't enough room for everyone to bowl at once. Paul Digney (the son of Dig Digney) helped out by emptying ashtrays.
