Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Kate Searle

The Utah Pony of America Club will be hosting the Rocky Mountain POA Sale on April 16 at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds featuring award-winning auctioneer Doug Sorrell. Sorrell began auctioneering in 1979 but his roots go deeper than that. His grandfather had an auction business and his father auctioned on the side, so you might say auctioneering is in his blood.

In 2015 alone, Sorrell raised more than $4.5 million dollars in 41 charity auctions. In 2014, he raised $1.1 million in net donations for families dealing with cancer-related issues. Much of his work now is done in behalf of nonprofit organizations at charity galas, but his auctioning talents began with horses.rAs the auctioneer of the POA International Sale in Iowa, Oklahoma and Indiana for 25 years, you could often hear him saying, “There are two colors of horses: palominos and those that wish they were.”

Sorrell is returning to the Rocky Mountain Sale this year to help sale consignments from Utah, Arizona, California and Colorado. Ponies of different ages and levels will be offered. POAs are known for their great disposition, appaloosa-type coloring and height up to 56 inches (14 hands). Sorrell’s knowledge of many different horse breeds will ensure a great auction experience for those in attendance.rThe day will begin with an all-breed spring horse clinic beginning at 9 a.m. The sale preview will then begin at noon and will go until the sale starts at 2 p.m. Contact Mike Gardner at 801-592-4095 or visit www.utahpoa.org for more information. Don’t miss the opportunity to watch one of the best auctioneers in the business.
