The Santa Barbara Lawn Bowls Club was formed on October 14, 1937. With a special tournament and luncheon last weekend, the club celebrated its 80-year history. First District S.B. County Supervisor Das Williams and a handful of officers from the Santa Barbara Police Department showed up to learn some proper technique, and Mayor Helene Schneider proclaimed October as Lawn Bowls Month. After the athletics, celebrators sat down for a lunch featuring music from the era and lots of Spam, which was also created in 1937.
