arena seeks funds
WOODSTOCK — A sports complex that faces an uncertain future is seeking $125,000 to keep running.
The Woodstock Union Arena is owned by the local high school.
Vermont Public Radio reports the arena has been running in the red for years. The arena’s board of directors has proposed dipping into the $450,000 endowment.
But the endowment’s trustees and the School Board did not agree that was the best solution. They encouraged discussion about other possibilities.
The School Board’s new arena subcommittee will meet soon with the facility’s management to work on a solution.MORE IN This Just InRICHARD'S POOR ALMANACK: 2nd president John Adams signs Sedition Act on this day in 1798 providing jail time for criticizing the government; Jerry Rubin, co-creator of the Yippies, American activist, political theorist, businessman, born this day in 1938. 0Rutland Herald content editor Rich Alcott uploads astronomic, historic and epigrammatic content...
