Sep. 24—The feathered, jeweled, and flower ridden toilet popping up in lawns across Caldwell County is not an indication of a homeowner’s decorating taste, it’s a potty with a purpose.

“I came home Friday to an interesting decoration in my front yard; a toilet. But not just any toilet, a South Caldwell Spartan toilet,” said Maria Brown, one of the first recipients to get canned.

The unsophisticated yard ornament is part of a fundraiser hosted by South Caldwell High School to raise money for their 2021 homecoming celebration.

Brown said she was excited to receive it because she was able to have it moved to coach Casey Justice’s yard the night of South’s big win over Hibriten. Justice is South Caldwell’s football coach.

Kim Clark, South Caldwell High School’s assistant principal, said she saw the idea online and thought it was brilliant.

“I thought, let’s do something to make some money,” she said. “I found a toilet, I decorated it, and then I started putting it in people’s yards.”

Clark said homecoming is typically sponsored by the student council, but with COVID-19 they couldn’t fundraise how they normally would.

Recipients of the toilet may ask for school staff to come and remove the toilet for $10, or move it to a friend’s yard or ask that staff do it for them for $20.

David & Mandy Church, another family to receive the toilet, said, “The SCHS toilet is an awesome and wonderful fun way to raise money for the school. I want to thank Kim Clark for this wonderful idea. She has outdone herself with making this beautiful! I want to thank her for coming up with this fun idea, it helps to have a little fun and laughter in the times we live in.”

Anyone who doesn’t wish to see the porcelain menace in their yard can prepay $30 to add their name to the “List of Insured Spartans.”

When the toilet was delivered to Kevin and Donna Princes residence they said they “were surprised to see a toilet being delivered through my Ring camera…but for a great cause, I didn’t mind having a gaudy toilet in my front yard for a day.”
