Great news, Lights on Avon supporters and donors!

Great news, Lights on Avon supporters and donors!

Great news, Lights on Avon supporters and donors!

Monday night, at a special Town Council meeting, members voted unanimously to invest approximately half of the recently awarded bond premium dollars (up to $235K) to the turf field lights project. Given that since we began our campaign in 2019 we've experienced two price increases and a pandemic, this is outstanding news and we are relieved and grateful.

If/when the use of these funds is approved by the Board of Finance, we will resume our campaign with a one-month holiday season push to raise $15,000 and close the books on the project by 12/31. Based on our pre-Covid campaign performance we know that, with the community's help, we can do this.

But first, we need to garner support from the Board of Finance which will meet and vote on the proposal next Monday, 11/23, at 7PM. A link to the video meeting is not yet available, but we will share it once it is – or, you can keep a lookout for it here.

Please let our Board of Finance members know that YOU support the Town Council’s generous proposal and you want THEM to approve it. You can write to them at the addresses below and/or attend their video meeting next Monday evening,11/23, to urge their support.

If all goes well, we will resume our campaign on Tuesday, 11/24 with expanded brick sales and other premiums - and we thank you in advance for your support!

Here are the Board of Finance member names and email addresses:

  • Tom Harrison tharrison@avonct.gov
  • Cathy Durdan cdurdan@avonct.gov
  • Ken Birk kbirk@avonct.gov
  • Margaret Bratton mbratton@avonct.gov

Lights On Avon Campaign

Avon High School

On behalf of the board of ACORN, Inc. and the community at large, thank you to those who have made a donation towards our Lights on Avon campaign. Because of your generosity, and that of nearly 300 other donors, we were on track to wrap up our campaign last June, in under one year.  

And then COVID-19 hit. Donations stalled, our grant applications were denied and, in deference to the financial and emotional strain of the pandemic, we suspended our campaign. 

Quite fortunately, at the July 30th Town Council meeting*, Town Council chair, Heather Maguire, and Town Manager, Brandon Robertson presented a potential solution to the approximately $200K Lights on Avon funding gap. Because of Avon’s exceptional fiscal management, the town recently received a $460K bond premium which can be spent in only two ways: for capital items related to the bonded project (which was the turf field) or to pay down debt service. The town is generously considering using some of the money to fund the field lighting project and the rest to pay down debt. 


(*Click here for the complete meeting minutes; the light funding discussion can be found beginning on page 6.) 

This is wonderful news – but, of course, not all residents see it this way and they have (and will continue to) let council members know. We need YOU to let council members know that you are a donor and proud supporter of Lights On Avon and that you enthusiastically support the investment of these bond premium dollars toward lighting the new turf track and field.

You can show your support in one of two ways (or both):

  • Attend the virtual Town CouncilMeeting this Thursday, November 5th at 7PM and voice your support during the “Communication from the Audience” part of the meeting (at the beginning). You can join via this link:  https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/557149309 Access code: 557149309# 
  • Write to the individual Town Council members and ask them to support the proposal and help accelerate it (see email addresses below)
    • Heather Maguire: 
    • Jeff Bernetich:
    • Jim Speich:
    • Anthony Weber: 
    • Dan Polhamus: 

Your voice matters. With your help, there will be light! 

Thank you,

Avon High School 13,480 pounds

The generosity of the AVON FALCON community throughout this friendly competition was outstanding! The outpouring of support from families helping those in need was amazing and could not have been more appreciated. It was also exciting to see the increase in participation versus last year’s competition throughout both communities.

 

Four of the five Avon schools participated in the SOUPer BOWL this year. At the High School specifically, there were various groups who directly supported this event. Music Service Society (MSS) as well as the Football and Volleyball teams collected donations at their respective events. Donations were also collected at the Girls Powderpuff Football Game.

 

FAME, PTO and the Booster Club also participated. Avon Prime Meats, a local business, generously donated after hearing about this event and allowed members from the Boys Golf and Boys Lacrosse teams to solicit donations at the store.

 

In total, $4,524 and 1,869 lbs. of food were collected on behalf of both charities. Avon collected an OUTSTANDING $2,390 and 1,530 lbs. of food for Gifts of Love. Simsbury donations collected an impressive $2,134 and 339 lbs. of food in support of the Simsbury Food Closet. Representatives from both charities were absolutely amazed at the levels of giving over the past two years.

 

A sincere, heart-felt THANK YOU to all students and families for their tremendous generosity and showing that AVON pride and spirit!
