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 Everybody needs stuff. It’s how things get done. Without stuff, you can only do so much. With more stuff, you can do more and better things, right? So, how do you get more stuff? You need cold, hard cash. We need cold, hard cash.rAsk any performing arts organization and they will tell you that they can do more and do it better if they have the right resources available to them. We don’t know why it is, but sports organizations don’t seem to have this problem. People are always willing to shell out the bucks for sports. Look at the NFL, the NBA, MLB, NHL, PGA, MLS, etc. They’ve got big bucks! What they pay their players is absolutely astonishing! Look at Little League and high school and college sports. Everyone’s willing to shell out the bucks for facilities for these guys. How many sports fields do you have in your town? In the performing arts, everyone struggles to stay alive. Does that make it any less important to society? No! It just seems to be a lower priority. Did you know that sports jocks would be even better if they took ballet lessons? It’s true! It helps them develop muscle control, stamina, timing, etc. beyond what they get by just taking sports training.rWhere are we going with all of this? Performing arts organizations need more stuff just like the sports guys do. This is where you, the public, come in. You can show your support by taking just a little bit of that cold, hard cash out of your sports entertainment budget and donating it to us. It’s all a matter of priority. A small change in your priorities can make a huge difference for us.rFor our project, we’re starting out simple and cheap. We need to build ADA compliant restrooms so we can start utilizing the building. It’s that simple. We can then allow the public (you) into the building to enjoy all the things we plan to do there for your entertainment and cultural enlightenment. So, we need to raise $20,000 to finish these restrooms and a small performance space. You can do it. You know you want to.rTo donate, you can go to our Gofundme page at https://www.gofundme.com/27z6xzr9 or you can donate directly at any Central Bank branch under the name Huish PACE. You can also mail a check to: Huish PACE, P.O. Box 182, Payson, UT 84651.
