TORRINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Concern over gambling has prompted Torrington school officials to cancel a fundraising trip to Mohegan Sun casino.
The trip to the casino was for adults, not students. Sales of bus tickets would have helped pay for eighth-grade students to travel to Washington, D.C. The popular trip takes students to some national landmarks, including Arlington Cemetery.
The Republican-American reports (http://bit.ly/1qk2Vgp ) that the school district cancelled the fundraising trip to the casino out of concern that participants would gamble.
