S.C. Equine Promotion Foundation Board Vice Chair John Cushman provided Camden City Council with some good news during its meeting Tuesday evening: the foundation already has commitments for all but about $220,000 of the $850,000 needed to construct a second covered arena at the S.C. Equine Park. The park, on Cleveland School Road near I-20 Exit 101, currently has a covered arena, but needs a another, larger one. “We, as a board, have voted to go ahead with a (second) covered arena,” Cushman said.
