Arlington Fly-In funding


Curt Hecla’s recent Letter to the Editor read that the Arlington Fly-In also received government funding after the 530 slide.

As President of the Board of Directors for the Arlington Fly-In, I oversee budgets and review the financial statements. I can assure you that the Fly-In received no such funding.

Perhaps Mr. Hecla meant to refer to grants funds from the City’s Hotel-Motel Tax Fund that the Fly-In applies for each year. This fund is generated by lodging taxes on overnight visitors and is used to promote events that generate overnight stays. Many great local events are recipients of this promotional funding including the Arlington Arts Council concerts, the Stilly Valley Genealogy convention and Red Rooster Route Days.

Thank you,

Nathan Lorance

President, Arlington Fly-In
