Portage Curling Club set to dedicate new wheelchair ramp Sunday

Posted on Sep 21, 2021 by Community

After a year-and-a-half, the Portage Curling Club is set to reopen its doors in style.

Following 18 months of being closed, the Curling Club will once again be open to the public on Sunday for the fall banquet, as well as a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for the facility’s new wheelchair ramp, and a Green Bay Packers viewing party.

The project also received a sizable boost from the likes of Miron Construction and Midwest Motion, which donated labor and provided architectural and general contracting services pro bono, respectively.

The Portage Curling Club is hopeful the addition of the ramp can provide young wheelchair athletes with a new sport to pursue, as well as hosting a number of events ranging from learn-to-curls, wheelchair or mixed bonspiels and major events like the U.S. Open Wheelchair Bonspiel, as well as team trials and championships.
