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 Megan Devenish, Spanish Fork

I just wanted to do a quick follow up to our story. A month or so ago my son, Karden, lost his wallet and his life savings at Nicklemania in Springville. He had been working hard by mowing lawns and saving his money for a deep sea fishing trip in Oregon while on vacation.

When he lost his money he was heartbroken! After a quick post on Facebook an amazing, kind hearted anonymous stranger dropped off $120.00 along with a note to buy a new wallet, a new fishing license and have an amazing time fishing. It was truly an awesome act of kindness…one we will never forget.

On August 20th Karden got his wish! Karden was able to go fishing with his dad, 3 uncles, grandpa and a cousin! They had a great time and made lots and lots of memories!! ( even if he was a bit seasick) They ended up with 11 fish and 70 crabs between them. What an adventure!

So once again, we want to say thank you to the amazing person that truly made a 13-year-olds’ summer vacation unforgettable and taught him a great life lesson. Because of this experience we have really tried to look around and find the opportunities to serve others.rWe appreciate you more than you will ever know!

With Love,

Ryan, Megan and Karden Devenish
