September 2023 Newsletter
Thank you for 17 amazing years! Last month we celebrated our 17th year as Gem City Gymnastics & Tumbling.
We cannot believe how quickly it’s flown by. Gem City has grown so much over the years and we have all of you to thank for making the gym such a great place for our community!
Also, thanks for sticking it out with us through the first week of this session! We know the first week can be hectic— kids not knowing teachers, parents not knowing where to stand or sit, and the gym being generally packed. THANK YOU. It only takes one week for everyone to figure out where to go and what to do!
❤️ All Staff are CPR Certified!
We are proud to say that our staff all renewed their training for CPR and our AED last month! We have been an AED facility since 2018. We are thankful to Quincy Firefighters Chris Bischel and Nathan Pool for taking the time to meet with our staff and get us up-to-date.

🎉 Two Recipients Named for the Troy Lucas Memorial Scholarship
We are happy to announce that we have TWO Troy Lucas Memorial Scholarship recipients this school year! We are so proud to continue to honor Troy in this way. Thank you to those that help get the word out.
The Troy Lucas Memorial Scholarship celebrates Troy’s love and enthusiasm for the gym. His weekly lesson became a part of his routine that helped him be more social and less inhibited. Gem City understands the powerful role played by athletics and gymnastics in helping kids grow. It’s why we created this scholarship in summer of 2021. Gem City offers this scholarship for weekly private lessons for a child with differing abilities to enable even more kids to have the experience like Troy did.
