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 Deborah Goodman

Every spring, longtime Spanish Fork resident, Carol Parker, has learned to roll with the extra attention she gets. She takes the increased traffic on her street in stride and knows by now not to be alarmed when strangers stop by her home to take pictures.

If you drive on Parker’s otherwise quiet street in March and April, you’ll be greeted by an explosion of glittering pastel eggs hanging from every surface. It’s a treasure that many have come to enjoy every year.

Parker was born in Provo and graduated from Springville High School, but has lived at 561 North 500 East in Spanish Fork for over 50 years. She’s always decorated for Christmas and Halloween, but then about 15 years ago, she began decorating for Easter, too.

Over time, it’s grown into quite the production. It usually takes her, along with family and friends, about four days, working for several hours a day, to get everything up and on display. But the end result is worth the effort. When asked why she goes to such great lengths, Parker simply replies, “I just really like doing it!”

This year, there are over 1300 brightly colored, dazzling Easter eggs on trees and bushes in her yard, as well as bunnies and chicks and Easter baskets. It’s a fun surprise for people passing through.
