A Lowellville society hosted a cornhole tournament in hopes of trying to get younger community members involved.

The Mount Caramel Society hosted its first tournament, attracting 30 teams and two brackets, one for youths and one for adults.

A society member said there’s a lot of tradition that gets passed down to members, and that’s one of the reasons why it hosted the event.

“For some reason the olive branch stopped getting passed down for a few years, and the situation now with the club is there’s a lot of older members, there’s not a lot of younger members in the club, so what they’re trying to do is some type of activity that will trigger the youth movement, to maybe spark membership back up with our club,” said Anthony Panici.

Organizers said they hope to make this an annual event.
