Letter to the Editor

Letter to the Editor from Your Tewksbury Today

My family and I would like to thank the Wamesit Lanes Family.

We attended the Mother’s Day Brunch and Bowl this past Sunday at Wamesit Lanes.  We were a party of seven, including two moms.  From the second we entered Wamesit, we were greeted warmly and us moms were given beautiful carnations.  We were shown to a beautifully set table with our names all reserved for us.  Our waitress, Tiana was amazing.  She came right over and took our drink order and was highly attentive throughout the whole brunch.  She was sweet and kind and made us fell like we were at home.  We made our way to the incredible buffet.  There was eggs, bacon, sausage, tons of different kinds of pastries, crepes, and then the carving stations were above par.  There was turkey, beef, fish, vegetables, side dishes galore, and lets not even get into the amount of desserts and fresh fruits!  There was a manager I believe that was right on point even helping my daughter get her syrup for the French Toast.  (sorry I didn’t catch his name).  Everyone enjoyed themselves and ate their fill.  Then it was off to our reserved bowling lane.  Again, flawless and effortlessly.  From the girls at the bowling check in, to the shoe girl and the server at the lane.  We bowled for a while and had a great time.

So, a big thank you from our family to yours, we had a fantastic Mother’s Day and hope that you continue to do this every year.  It was perfect!
The Gonzalez Family

— Wamesit note: Thank you to the Gonzalez family.  We are thrilled to be a part of your Mother’s Day celebration.

Wamesit Lanes On Target For Fall In Tewksbury

By Chelsea Feinstein, cfeinstein@lowellsun.com

TEWKSBURY — The walls are up at Wamesit Lanes, soon to be the region’s newest entertainment destination.

After a harsh winter delayed the start of construction, the facility is now set to open in late September or early October.

The 45,000-square-foot entertainment center, situated on the former site of the Motel Caswell, will feature 10-pin and candlepin bowling, an arcade, golf simulators, a bocce-ball course, a restaurant and lounge, and an outdoor seating area.

The $12.4 million project has been hailed by many as one that will attract people to Tewksbury and improve the look of Route 38 in an area that is considered a gateway to town.

Don MacLaren Jr., who co-owns the property with his father, Don Sr., said they started construction in earnest on March 16 after laying the building’s foundation before the winter set in.

“The winter really killed us, just with not being able to get on to the site,” MacLaren Jr. said. “We just had to wait around for the weather to turn around. It was a little discouraging when reality set in, but now we’re back up and running with it.”

As their opening day approaches, the father-and-son team are planning more and more specifics of how the place will operate. To keep as many as 48 taps flowing in the bar area, they’re planning to partner with local breweries.

“It’s a local facility, and I feel like we wouldn’t be doing it right if we didn’t get local breweries involved and the local community. That’s what it’s all about,” MacLaren Jr. said.
