Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE - By Ed Helmick

Span­ish Fork’s Memo­rial Square, with 200 plaques that honor lo­cal cit­i­zens, has been “re­freshed” to make it more invit­ing to visit. That project of sev­eral months has been com­pleted and a reded­i­ca­tion cer­e­mony was held on May 26.

Dale Robin­son of the city parks and recre­ation depart­ment de­scribed the project and rec­og­nized the peo­ple in­volved. Mayor Steve Leif­son pre­sented a his­tory of Span­ish Fork and Memo­rial Square. This was fol­lowed by a song sung by Gre­gory Duf­fin, which was a lo­cal­ized ver­sion of the Bob Hope song “Thanks for the Mem­o­ries.” The lo­cal adap­tion was writ­ten by Elaine Hansen, spe­cial events co­or­di­na­tor for the city. Copies of those lyrics are avail­able at Span­ish Fork City Hall.

Then there was the rib­bon cut­ting by the mayor, who was ac­com­pa­nied by other city of­fi­cials and Miss Span­ish Fork Dex­onna Tal­bot with her at­ten­dants Jill McCon­nell and Mar­ley Tan­ner.

Memo­rial Square, lo­cated on Main Street in Span­ish Fork, was re­cently re­designed to make it more invit­ing for vis­i­tors.
