Ted sod sale

Curbside Service

May 7, 2009 // 0 Comments

Coke was driving in town last Saturday morning when she spotted signs promoting the REF’s “TipToe through the Ted” sod sale. She hurried on over to the high school and purchased six rolls of sod and returned home to place them in her yard. The football turf looked so great she quickly returned to the high school and purchased eight more rolls. Ram football players provided assistance through-out the day by loading sod in purchasers vehicles. About to load sod in the rear of Coke’s vehicle are Rockford varsity football players Joe Stefanski (middle) and Jon Newsome (r). The days activities were sponsored by the Rockford Education Foundation (REF), Rockford Football and Band Boosters. REF administrator Sue Arend tells the Squire that the promotion was a “win-win for everyone involved”. As of Monday morning, May 4, some 500 yards of sod had been sold and she was still busy fielding calls from new first time purchasers as well as those seeking to add to a previous purchase or donation.
