NUTLEY, NJ - Multiple sources have told TAPinto Nutley that the Nutley Educational Foundation is strongly considering a 'Turkey Trot' for Thanksgiving 2017.

At this time it appears that event planning is very preliminary. Holding such events requires extensive planning, obtaining permits, road closures and much more. One source told TAPinto Nutley "this is Nutley, everything is possible if we just let it." 

The Nutley Educational Foundation lists its mission as "To obtain and utilize alternative sources of funding for the Nutley Public School District, including facilities upgrading, curriculum development, instructional and professional development projects for the benefit of the Nutley Public School community and the Township of Nutley community."
