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 Fundraising for a world-class aviation education center at the Springville-Spanish Fork Airport is underway by the local Civil Air Patrol Squadron. The facility is named in honor of local and national hero Colonel Gail Halvorsen. He became famous as the candy bomber during the 1948 Berlin blockade Air Lift.

The facility will be almost 10,000 square feet and will provide space to preserve and display some of Gail’s memorabilia, enable aviation education experiences for K-12 students and house the CAP aircraft and other equipment for their mission.

Fundraising strategy involves three projects, direct fundraising from regional philanthropists and corporations, community events and personalized inscribed bricks for a wall leading to the building. The bricks can be purchased for $250 and have up to three lines of text with your name, family or corporate name showing your support for the Gail Halvorsen Aviation Center.
