Dear Assumption Family and Friends,
We would like to invite you to become a member of this year’s Assumption Century Club. All Century Club Members are invited to our Annual Steak Fry on Friday, August 13. Cocktails begin at 6:00 p.m. with dinner at 6:30 p.m. in the Assumption Courtyard between the gym and the auditorium. This event is free to all Century Club Members. This event has been a great Assumption tradition for well over thirty (30) years and a fun way to kick off the upcoming seasons for all sports programs.
The Century Club’s sole mission is to provide financial assistance to the AHS girls’ and boys’ athletic programs. Each year the Century Club helps support all of our team sports by funding new equipment, special projects and facility improvements. Typically, the Century Club provides in excess of $20,000.00 in financial assistance to Assumption’s Athletic Programs on an annual basis.
Our AHS Athletic Programs enjoyed continued success this past 2020 – 2021 school year. Last year we had what I will call “The Year of COVID 19” where all sports were affected by the pandemic in some fashion and some had no season at all. However, AHS Athletic Programs were still able to find success and that success carried over to this year too. The volleyball team made it to State, girls and boys basketball teams made it to State, and the girls soccer team won its 9th State title over the last 10 years. In addition, as of this writing the softball team just won the MAC conference title and have punched their ticket to State! Numerous other AHS programs and individual athletes also had outstanding seasons this past year. Your membership dues directly assist our athletes with accomplishing these amazing achievements.
PLEASE CONSIDER BECOMING A CENTURY CLUB MEMBER. The “Century” in our name signifies the amount of the annual dues – $100.00. However, a growing number of AHS supporters are choosing to become “Gold Members” for $200.00. Membership dues are TAX DEDUCTIBLE*.
We strive to have a broad base of support across the AHS community, so either amount is greatly appreciated. To become a member of the Century Club, we ask that you complete the attached CENTURY CLUB MEMBERSHIP FORM and return the completed form, along with your dues, to: Assumption High School, Attention: Century Club, 1020 West Central Park Avenue, Davenport, Iowa 52804. Checks should be made payable to “AHS Century Club”. If you have a student, you can elect to pay your dues as part of your school registration. Please see Membership Form for online payment option (convenience fee charged) as well!
As in the past, we will be raffling off some great prizes at the Steak Fry. Raffle tickets are available for purchase — 1 for $10, 3 for $25 or 8 for $50 by indicating your preference on the Membership Form.
Thank you for your support of our strong athletic tradition at Assumption!
