2019 Fr. Ken Martin Memorial Golf Outing – Aug. 28

Wednesday, August 28, 2019, at Emeis Golf Course

This event honors Father Ken Martin, an avid golfer and special friend. Upon his death, he left $1,000 for his golfing buddies to have an outing, and they decided to honor “Father Kenny” by creating this annual event.

Through the years this outing has raised over $300,000 to benefit Scott County K-12 Catholic school students through emergency scholarship grants. Your donation will help children to continue their Catholic school education in spite of their family’s current financial crisis.

Please join us for this charity event! RESERVATIONS for golf and dinner, or dinner only, are available.

SIGN UP EARLY as space is limited for this event! Based upon past successes, the slots will fill early. DOWNLOAD and mail in the registration form HERE.

GOLF RESERVATIONS include golf, cart, prizes, refreshments on the course, and dinner at the Knights of Columbus.

FOR SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION contact Andy Craig at andy.craig@assumptionhigh.org or 563-326-5313 Ext. 225.

2019 Century Club Membership and Steak Fry

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 16. 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 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. Last year alone the Century Club provided in excess of $20,000.00 in financial assistance to Assumption’s Athletic Programs.

Our AHS Athletic Programs enjoyed continued success this past 2018-2019 school year. Amazingly, we had three (3) of our sports programs “repeat” as State Champions: last summer the softball team took home another 3A State Championship; the baseball team recorded a record 10th State Championship; and our girls’ soccer team continued their astonishing run of State Championships by winning their 8th state title over the past nine (9) years! In addition, as of this writing the baseball and softball teams each just clinched MAC conference titles! Numerous other AHS programs and individual athletes 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!

Bill Bush ‘82, Century Club President
Treasurer: Jen Dorsey
Board Members: Troy Allen, Kathleen Argo ‘83, Mike O’Donnell ’83, John Timmons ‘87, Tim Walsh, Trisha McIntosh, Amy Weiman ’94, Kevin Halligan ’82, and Mike Motto ’98.
