A new curtain was hung Friday afternoon across the stage at the Community Events Center in White River. The curtain replaces the original brown plastic that became worn and deteriorated through the years. The WRHS girls basketball team played Saturday against the new backdrop, a classic shade of purple with “TIGERS” inscribed in gold across the purple fabric. The blue stage curtains were also replaced with new purple drapery.
Replacing the curtains became the focus project of the PTO Boosters last year after the new scoreboards were installed. The Boosters raised funds by selling T-shirts and other spirit items and received donations through private individuals, business entities, and other organizations, including the WRHS Alumni Association. Funds needed in completing the project were between $8,000 and $10,000.
