Cheves Athletic Center

It was a wonderful day for the ground breaking ceremony of the Cheves Athletic Center last week! The crowd came out despite the heat to share in the excitement of this new project!

The CAC will be home to locker rooms and a concessions area and multi-purpose classrooms and meeting rooms, but perhaps the most exciting component is the museum that will tell the story of the history of Brookstone Athletics. Not only the major athletic accomplishments, but the stories of the memories shared and relationships built. It will be a phenomenal facility! Enjoy these photos from the event!
