Andy Williams, right, and Paul Samp install plywood boards on top of the new spring floor Alpena gymnastics bought for $23,800. Both have daughters in the group, and volunteered their time to install the new floor. The organization got the competition-size floor with help from an $18,000 grant from the Alpena County Youth and Recreation Fund, a $1,000 grant from Lafarge and by selling candles through a fundraiser, organization member Leah Stafford said. It’ll replace the makeshift carpet-and-foam flooring the gymnastics group had used before, and allow gymnasts to practice their skills with less of an impact on their joints and bones.
