r Spanish Fork’s Memorial Square, with 200 plaques that honor local citizens, has been “refreshed” to make it more inviting to visit. That project of several months has been completed and a rededication ceremony was held on May 26.
Dale Robinson of the city parks and recreation department described the project and recognized the people involved. Mayor Steve Leifson presented a history of Spanish Fork and Memorial Square. This was followed by a song sung by Gregory Duffin, which was a localized version of the Bob Hope song “Thanks for the Memories.” The local adaption was written by Elaine Hansen, special events coordinator for the city. Copies of those lyrics are available at Spanish Fork City Hall.
Then there was the ribbon cutting by the mayor, who was accompanied by other city officials and Miss Spanish Fork Dexonna Talbot with her attendants Jill McConnell and Marley Tanner.
