TURF THE VALLEY!
Turf the Valley is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising
money to turf Montville High School’s stadium, known as
“Death Valley” to opposing teams. Artificial turf requires
no cutting, no watering, no seeding, aerating, or other chores
associated with the maintenace of natural grass. It has also been
proven that injuries are less likely to occur on turf than on a grass
A question of funding was posed to the voters of Montville in 2005 and
was defeated. Additionally, the general budget for the Board of
Education was defeated in 2007. A committee of concerned Montville
citizens has taken it upon themselves to start a fund raising campaign
similar to what other districts have done to raise this money.
Taking into account the cost of inflation and a time frame of 18-36
months, it has been estimated that we will need approximately $900,000
to achieve our goal. Our plan is to ask 1000 families to donate $300
each. We will approach 300 businesses and ask them to donate $1000
each. That will get us two-thirds of the way there. Additional funds
will be raised through conventional, but creative fund raisers. And
remember, all donations are 100% tax deductible.
