In this week’s Standard Press…

      The power of community pride and the allure of high school athletics came together recently to provide the push needed to fund a major upgrade of athletic facilities at Burlington High School.

This summer the school will undertake replacement of its running track and installation of artificial turf at Don Dalton Stadium at a cost of $1.48 million. What made it possible? About $1 million comes in the form of donations.

The report on the community-backed upgrades is among the top stories in this week’s edition of the Burlington Standard Press.

The newspaper will be on sale at local retail outlets Thursday and subscribers will receive their copies with Thursday’s mail.
