Some Southern Tier students will finally get to go on a field trip to Cooperstown thanks to the generosity of local business and the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.
Rowdy the Pony was on hand Friday as he and team owner John Hughes presented a $500 check to students and teachers at Horace Mann Elementary School. That was the exact amount requested in the heartfelt letters students had sent in asking for donations to cover the cost of a charter bus for their trip.
According to a WBNG report, businesses including Citrea Restaurant and Bar also made donations. The extra money will help fund future field trips.
