When we hear the word "history," more often than not, we immediately begin to recall the past. To what extent would you go to preserve this history and make it a tangible part of the present and the future? Even though Premier Lanes has closed, it's monumental "Bowl" sign still stands as a piece of that history. It has been five years, since the doors closed to the bowling alley and every day that passes, this famous sign grows older, unattended in the face of weather, vandalism and time. Valley Relics would never attempt to remove history from the world, if it could have thrived on it's own. But, the risk of losing this incredible relic is beoming more of a reality, as time goes by. We have been in contact with the sign's owner and are so enthused to say that the sign has been donated to the Valley Relics collection. However, after this correspondance, it has come to our attention that other attempts have been made to preserve this sign and there are others who feel entitled to the responsibility. The fact of the matter is that it has been five years and none of these attempts have succeeded. Whether it is due to a lack of equipment, room for storage, or the monetary means to accomplish this removal, the sign remains unmoved. There have even been talks about repurposing the sign. This alternative to removing the sign might sound promising, but it would mean that this prized "BOWL" sign might someday be defaced to advertise "SHOP," for the stores that take the place of this bowling alley. Valley Relics presents a solution: Speak up and let our voices be heard! We can save this sign. Valley Relics has a home for the sign, the means to safely remove it and the passion to preserve it. By signing this petition, you are not commiting any of your time or money. All we are asking is that you stand behind Valley Relics and our mission to save this sign. We are reaching out to you, so that this history does not become a part of the past.
