Rutland residents and friends will be partying long tonight to send off the Lariat Bar. A new bar will be built over the summer with the goal to complete construction by fall. The Lariat will provide ‘temporary’ service this summer at the American Legion building. The Rutland Fitness Center has relocated most of its equipment to the Fire Hall so that residents can continue their fitness routines during the summer construction. The Legion Hall needs some preconstruction to get ready for the bar to open and provide food and beverages to its clientele this summer. Stay tuned here or on the Lariat website for updates and future photos of the progress this summer.
