Lovers of family games and South Walton rejoice: 30A is getting a board game.

30A-opoly is a fundraiser for The Tree House Episcopal Montessori School and will hit local shelves the week of Dec. 15.

The idea came from the mother of two Tree House students, Genevieve Torrey. While growing up, Torrey experienced firsthand the Montessori educational system.

“This is something that has been done in my family,” she said. Circa ’83, Torrey’s mother enlisted friends to sell sponsorship slots on a game board as a fundraiser “with the same goals behind it.”

Torrey fondly remembers playing it for decades, and it set the wheels in motion for a similar concept to be replicated at The Tree House.

The idea for 30A-opoly was born, and other Tree House parents rushed to get on board to bring it to fruition.

Mothers Torrey, Michelle Uhlfelder, Candace Price and Gigi Fernandez Brantley volunteered their time and efforts to hit 30A and approach businesses about sponsorship opportunities for inclusion on the board and in the “House Hunting” and “Shopping Spree” cards to sit in the center of the board.
