Gym remodel wows crowds


The most talked-about recent facilities improvement has to be the refurbishing of Assumption’s large gym. The project began in the fall of 2010 with the generous donation of two new scoreboards and was followed by the replacement of the gym floor over the summer of 2011.

Thanks to several generous donors, April Knights 2009, 2010 and 2011, Spaghetti Supper 2010, Assumption’s Century and Booster Clubs, and a grant from the Bechtel Trust and Foundation, the large gym is the latest object of Assumption pride. If you have not yet seen the new and improved gymnasium, come check it out at one of this winter’s sporting events!

If you are looking for a unique Christmas or birthday gift, sections of the old gym floor have been made into keepsake plaques and are available for purchase. Please contact Joe Barrer at (563) 326-5313, ext. 231 or if you are interested in obtaining a piece of Assumption history.
