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 Gail HalladayrDeseret Industries, a nonprofit chain of thrift stores featuring vocational training and donation processing, will open a new retail store this month in Springville at 655 S. 1750 West. A three-day grand opening celebration is planned for October 27-29 including live music and giveaways.

“We receive donations covering every possible household need,” said Marketing Manager Brooke Yates. “With so many new items added to the inventory daily, it’s a treasure hunt each time our customers visit. We often have people lined up at our doors when we open each morning.”

The retailer brings far more than just quality secondhand goods to the area as well. The Springville location has nearly 50,000 square feet of space and plans to employ 130 to 140 associates as part of its career training program. Associates develop skills and obtain certifications enabling them to advance to permanent, full-time employment in a variety of fields and careers.
