ABOUT TOWN: Cow Pie Bingo to Drop in on Stoughton High (And Thanksgiving Trash Talk)

Welcome to "About Town with Mark Snyder," a column that will keep you up to the minute with what's what, who's who and what's going on around town. If you see or hear something we could use here, let us know by sending an e

A CRAPPY CONTEST! The student-athletes on the Stoughton High football and Canton High football teams will be the featured players on the SHS football field Thanksgiving morning, but a couple days later, on Saturday, Nov. 24 cows will take over Stoughton High School's football field!

At 1 p.m., the field will be divided into grids and tickets are being sold allowing you to purchase one of these special squares of grid, grass and soil.

Cows will then be allowed to wander on the field, and whoever owns the grid that the cow poops on first is the big winner of $3,000. The second cow's deposit will result in a $1,000 prize!

This fundraiser will help support the Stoughton High School Class of 2013, and will let two lucky players strike pay dirt (and we do mean dirt!) If the Class of 2013 can sell all the tickets, it will enable the senior prom and related activities to be FREE!  

Tickets are $30 each. Buy a ticket yourself or form a group of "investors."

To buy contact class advisor Tim Norton at t_norton@stoughtonschools.org. Ticket sales are limited.

Speaking of the DPW, here is an IMPORTANT NOTICE:
