The gateway to Augsburg and the community

Sept. 8, 2006

Gateway GroundbreakingEven the threat of rain and cloudy skies could not dampen the spirits and celebration of the groundbreaking ceremony for the Oren Gateway Center, which took place Friday, Sept. 8.  A crowd, which included about 80 students from the Cedar Riverside School, was on hand to celebrate this historic event. Following the ceremony, people moved across the street onto the Augsburg lawn for a festive celebration of food and games.

This was not only an Augsburg celebration, but also one for the surrounding community. President Paul Pribbenow told the audience, “The neighbors around us have helped make Augsburg a great place.”
