Speaking of boosters, the athletic boosters at Edgewood High School were founded Tuesday, Sept. 30, 1952 in a meeting.
During the get together, James McDonald was chosen as temporary chairman for the group.
And the following men were activated into committees:
- Manny Lucha and Paul Lisby — membership.
- Edward Hoadley and Millard Wormal — publicity and advertising.
- Joe Kearney and Sam Bucci — constitution.
- Earl Thayer and Ira Ringer — program.
- Carl Mayberry and George Fitchet — entertainment.
The group officially chose the name, “The Edgewood Bulldog Booster Club.”
Down their lanes
Also in 1952, a pair of Ashtabula County bowling houses opened their doors.
On Sunday, Nov. 9 of that year, Lake Shore Lanes, located at 2234 Lake Avenue, got the ball(s) rolling, so to speak.
The 12-lane facility was owned by George Corsaro and managed by Joe Bernardo.
Meanwhile, in southern Ashtabula County, the Grand Valley Rec Center opened in Rome Township.
Salvatore Andronico, owner of Orwell Recreation, was the owner of the six-lane house.
