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 For generations, the Brookside Drive area in Springville has been what you might call a neighborhood of “starter homes.” Starter homes, of course, are usually where young couples build or buy a home and begin to raise children with the intent to move on to something bigger in the future. Many Brookside Drive residents for years seem to have not gotten that memo, and their starter homes have become places where they actually end up putting down their roots.rSuch is the case with Joy Hoppe, a resident of Brookside Drive now for 33 years. She and her husband Dale moved into their home in 1983. Dale passed away in 2010 and Joy now lives there with her special needs son Donald, daughter Linda, granddaughter Nikki and great-grandchildren Selena and Armani.rTheir cozy little home, which was built around the time of World War II, now is naturally in need of some upkeep. Their most urgent need is a new roof.rThe Springville chapter of the Rotary Club has heard the call and is ready to assist Joy and her family by providing materials, labor and funds to fix the roof. Jake Harwood, the president of the Rotary Club, explained that besides the service they have provided the community in the past like Sunday in the Park, which raises funds for scholarships, the club is focused on the needs of individuals in the area like Joy.rMany Rotary members will donate time and labor to totally replace Hoppe’s roof. Spencer Measom and his company Park Place Construction will donate man hours to remove and replace the old roof, with Measom acting as manager on this project. Rick Salisbury of Salisbury Homes is donating to this and other similar projects. SUNROC Building Materials and Builder’s Supply are providing roofing and construction materials. Because of all the generous donations of time and materials, Harwood said, the total cost of the project will be a fraction of what their estimates were.rWeather permitting, the Rotary Club is set to begin the project this week. Stay tuned for more details on how this project is completed. Just in time for winter weather, the Springville Rotary Club will be making Brookside Drive just a bit more snug for Joy Hoppe and her family.
