At the end of April, a crew of W.W. Clyde and Geneva Rock employees came together in Perry, Utah, to prepare a large dirt field to become soccer fields for the city’s soccer league. Perry City received a grant from the state of Utah, which would match any funds or in-kind donations with a dollar-for-dollar match. The Geneva and W.W. Clyde team took this opportunity to provide training for employees on machine guidance, GPS systems while getting work done on the fields. Perry City and officials from the soccer league were ecstatic about the community service and were thrilled to partner with the Clyde Companies on the project.
Because of the companies’ donated time, the city has fulfilled almost its entire obligation to receive the matching grant. Currently, Perry City does not have its own soccer facilities and must pay a fee to Brigham City each year to use its fields. Now, with its own fields in place, which will be ready to use in time for next season, the soccer league will have more flexibility for the number of games, game time and field maintenance.
