The Canistota Clipper Thursday, August 7, 2014 pg2 Debt Continues To Dwindle The Canistota Sports Complex debt is now down to just over $6,000! $6,052.00 to be exact, counting a sec- ond payment from Sanford. The pancake feed held over Sport Days netted $750 to the debt and the first annual Golf Calcutta paid over $2,100 to- ward the debt. There are still a few major projects to do yet on the new sports complex. But the City may do some to- ward these and another raffle fundraiser is being planned. Keep an eye out for that! Also the Flex Appeal Run/Walk set for Saturday, August 9 will donate pro- ceeds to the Sports Complex and the Monday Night Foot- ball Books will be sold again (see story elsewhere) and the money raised toward the debt. The overall cost of the project to date was approxi- mately $220,000. So well done Canistota!! Facing a mere $6,000 and only a few major things left to complete is a great community project.
