What’s Bocce Ball? It’s an Italian sport turned American, and it’s now in Bishop City Park.
The City of Bishop along with the Bishop Bocce Club held a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday at the newly completed Bocce court in the city park.
The ribbon cutting marked the fact that the Bishop Bocce Club is now an active member of the Bishop Chamber of Commerce and in conjunction with the completed Bocce Court.
The event was attended by the city council, city administer, Park and Rec director and many others. The project was funded by the local Rotary chapters and other fund raising activities. Founder of the Bocce Club, Skandar Reid, spearheaded the project since last Jan. 2010. Mayor Jeff Griffith rolled out the first ball.
