The always successful girls’ volleyball team at East Providence High School won its second straight match of the new season on Monday night, Sept. 9. But the real star of the night may have been the gymnasium itself.
Fans got their first look at the refurbished gymnasium – the result of the successful Townie Project. See story on Patch by clicking here.
Dozens of volunteer raised more than $80,000 to pay for the white paint for the ceilings and walls, the red paint for the window frames, and the stripping and recoating of what had been a tired looking floor.
Then there is the new “Townie” logo at half court.
And fans sat in bleachers donated by Providence College, which replaced its old bleachers with the ones that now sit in the EPHS gymnasium.
An opening ceremony for the refurbished gym is being planned for later this month. See the complete story on the opening win on eastbayri.com.
