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 It was quite a celebration that was held for the groundbreaking for the construction of the new $150 million Spanish Fork Hospital on August 13, 2018. Unlike any other major construction groundbreaking, the local dignitaries did not use shovels, they used mule and horse-drawn plows and scrapers. This was the idea of Wayne Anderson, former Mayor of Spanish Fork, and others, months ago when planning for the ceremony was first discussed. The idea was to reflect our pioneer and agricultural heritage.

The Intermountain Healthcare 30 bed community hospital has been more than 10 years in planning and financing. It is located on 45 acres northeast of Wal-Mart at 765 E. Market Place Drive. For the groundbreaking, a huge pavilion was set up for the hundreds of people that came to the event. After remarks from eight of the people involved in bringing this hospital to our community and a poem from local cowboy poet Paul Bliss, the turning of the dirt began. Each of the dignitaries took a turn behind a mule or horse-drawn plow or scraper. It was a quite a day in the history of Spanish Fork. The next major gathering like this will be in the fall of 2020 when the facility is dedicated.
