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 Shannon M. AcorrFree Family Professional Portrait Day at the Springville Library was a huge success! Six professional photographers, Anna Harrison, founder and president of the non-profit Your Light International, Centro Hispano and many volunteers helped to create lasting memories for 279 people and over 50 families!

The library was abuzz Saturday evening as dressed-up families arrived at the library for their family portrait sessions. All sessions were donated by the photographers. The photographers also edit and load the images onto disks with a copyright release for the family’s personal use. Your Light International uses generous donations to print a free 8×10 for each family.

Founder Anna Harrison was inspired to create Your Light International after living in Armenia. According to Harrison, “Many of the people there have nothing more than their passport photos and after a loved one has passed away, they hang that photo on the wall. I imagined how happy they would be to have a beautiful family photo to hang up, to have pride in, to hold onto. I came to feel that a simple, nice, family photo is something that every person should have.”

We help to empower individuals and provide a lasting keepsake for loved ones.”
