Perry City has named Geneva Rock Products “Business of Year” for the Clyde/Geneva Group’s donation of equipment, time and labor on the construction of the new community soccer fields. The company was honored Monday, July 5, at the annual community awards ceremony, a part of the city’s 4th of July festivities.At the end of April, a crew comprised of Geneva Rock and W.W. Clyde employees, led by Machine/Guidance Manager Lance Greer, came together in Perry, Utah, to turn a large dirt field into soccer fields for the city’s soccer league. Perry City received a grant from the state of Utah, which matched any funds or in-kind donations with a dollar-for-dollar contribution. The Clyde/Geneva Group took this opportunity to provide training for employees on machine guidance, all while getting the work done on the fields.
Perry City and officials from the soccer league were ecstatic about the donation and were thrilled to partner with the Clyde Companies on the project. Because of the 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.
Greer and Jim Golding, president of Geneva Rock Products, were present at the awards ceremony Monday and accepted the award on behalf of the companies.
