"Bel Mateo Bowl [has] been serving our community as a successful bowling alley for over 60 years and it's something with the tech, the high tech that you see in the [Silicon] Valley and every place in California that this business is so successful. I called and asked if I could get a lane one night and they said "Not a chance.' They're booked all the time. What a successful business, family business and the whole team is here today. We're so proud of them because they serve the community - family events, and a lot of great work they do for all of us in the community. So we want to honor them and their great business in California." - Senator Jerry Hill
