I was lucky enough to attend the Paly Gym Farewell community celebration on Sunday, March 16th. After 85 years of being a focal point for Viking pride and hosting thousands of events such as games, dances, and rallies, Palo Alto High School community members, esteemed alumni, and current students and staff spent the afternoon bidding farewell to their beloved gymnasium. Built in the late 1920’s, Paly's gym is one of the few classic gyms still serving students in the Bay Area. It was a poignant goodbye to a gym that has served Paly athletes well. Thanks to a very generous community member, a new gym complex is being envisioned and built.
