The Terre Haute Bowlers Hall of Fame banquet was held on May 10 at the Elks Club in Terre Haute.
The banquet is held each year to honor four people who have been recognized by their peers for their achievement and merit.
Two men and two women are inducted each year into the Hall of Fame after being elected to the board and by their peers. This year, Sherry DeLisle was presented the Achievement Award while Mary Houk was awarded the Meritorious Award. For the men, William Chance Jr. received both awards.
