Goessel Bluebirds to celebrate 50th Anniversary of junior high gym

On Dec. 1, 1970, the Goessel Bluebirds opened the 1970-1971 season. This was the first game of the season and the first game in the new gym, now known as the Junior High gym.

On Jan. 7, the Bluebirds invite you to come and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Junior High gym. All men and women who played on the 1970-1971 basketball teams will be recognized and receive free admission. All games on January 7 will be played in the Junior High gym. Admission for the event will be $1 for adults, free for students.

Thank you to The Citizens’ State Bank and the Goessel Recreation for making this possible.

In 1970-1971 the team changed their name from the Goessel Bluebirds to the Goessel Fighting Bluebirds. A drawing for a quilt depicting the fighting Bluebird will be held that evening. Old photos, trophies, and miscellaneous memorabilia will also be available for a donation that evening. Alumni will be serving concessions. All proceeds benefit the Alumni Association.
