'Spaghetti and Songs' event to boost Wellston Track Fund
The road to a new track facility at the Wellston High School campus will be a long one, but another positive step will be taken when a special musical/dining fundraising event this Friday evening, Nov. 17.

The Wellston Bring Back the Track Committee is sponsoring "Spaghetti and Songs," an evening of dinner and music, starting at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the high school cafetorium. The dinner menu is spaghetti, salad, breadstick, drink and dessert. The highlight of the evening will be musical entertainment presented by Dana Lockard Wiseman, Kylee Hendershott and Grace Potter, who will be singing selected songs of Carole King.

The floor show will begin after the guests have been served and will last approximately 30 minutes. "We are always looking for ways to encourage our talented students to perform," a committee spokesman stated, "and it is fun to showcase Wellston's talent."

The cost of this evening is $10 per person with all money going to the track fund. Tickets are available are Brodigan's Sports and Trophies on Ohio Avenue in downtown Wellston and at the Wellston High School office. Only a limited number of tickets will be sold.

"Please act early so that we can get a count on attendance and plan accordingly; don't miss out on this fun, entertaining evening," the spokesman added. "Please come out to support the track project and the community's talented singers."

"Spaghetti and Songs" is another event planned to raise money for the new track facility on the high school campus. The new track would not only provide WHS track athletes and the general public with a top-notch facility on campus to replace an older and inadequate track which is situated off campus next to C.H. Jones Field.

Wellston Superintendent of Schools Karen Boch noted the Rockets haven't hosted a meet since 1999, because the existing track is not regulation size and does not promote the safety due to the material of the track.

"We have now raised approximately $490,000 which would have allowed us to start the excavation work," Boch reported to The Telegram. "Unfortunately, due to the need for additional prep work as a result of abandoned underground mines, the cost is more than anticipated. With that being said, we are currently investigating all of our options as they relate to the degree of remediation work; and then we will weigh the options along with the risks.
