Tryon Riding and Hunt Club donates to open-air gym

Published 8:00 am Thursday, December 27, 2018

The Tryon Riding and Hunt Club donated $1,000 to Polk County Early College student Mason Lassiter last week, who is raising money to renovate the open-air gymnasium at Harmon Field. Lassiter has taken on the renovation for his senior project next year. He hopes to raise $40,000 to replace the flooring, basketball goals and add benches and a water fountain. Lassiter has already received some funding from the town of Tryon and Tryon International Equestrian Center.  Pictured is Lassiter with Tryon Riding and Hunt Club’s Gary Zumstein. Donations can be dropped off at the Polk County Early College or mailed to 143 Chestnut St., Tryon, N.C. 28782. (Submitted photo)
