Wartrace Hosting Alumni Basketball Game
The first official basketball game at the newly renovated Wartrace gymnasium is finally here after five long years of being on the bench. The popular Fred Russell Gymnasium reopened in October following a massive rehabilitation project which provided for ADA compliance, a new heat/air system and venting, fresh paint, new murals, and more.
To honor former players and fans of the gym, the Wartrace Parks & Recreation Committee is hosting an alumni basketball game on February 25, 2023 at 2:00 p.m.
"This iconic landmark has been so important to this community and to the individuals who have been blessed to gather here,” said Tammy Leverette, chairman of the Parks & Recreation Committee. “We would like to honor those who played here at the Wartrace gym by keeping the team spirit alive while training the next generation of Champions. We can only accomplish this by making sure this historic building stays in good shape. Events like this one will help us fund any ongoing expenses and we hope this will be a yearly event."
Wartrace invites anyone with an affiliation with the gym (past or present) to sign up and put your hoop skills to the test! This will be a mixed game (male and female) and all ages. To play or volunteer to work, contact Ms. Leverette at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 3rd.
