American Fork and Lehi to honor veterans

By Linda Petersen
Two local communities have events planned to celebrate Veterans Day.

The city of American Fork is sponsoring a Veteran's Day program, Saturday, November 11, at 11 a.m. at the American Fork Junior High auditorium. With the theme "All Gave Some, Some Gave All" the program will feature Camp Williams garrison commander Lieutenant Colonel Matt Price. An honor roll of those who died in combat will be read and memorial flags will be placed in their name, followed by a 21-gun salute. The American Fork High School Chamber Choir will perform. The first and second place winners of the local Mary Kawakami Scholarship Speech Contest will also deliver their speeches. American Fork Junior High is located at 20 W 1120 N American Fork.

Lehi City will again participate with Standing Quietly, an organization founded by local resident Jonathan Walker to honor those who have given their lives for the freedoms we enjoy and to celebrate Veterans Day. Veterans and volunteers will stand to attention with a flag on the 500 East bridge over I-15 from 9 to 11 a.m. There will be a flag ceremony, along with a brief program with musical numbers where Mayor Bert Wilson will speak. Local school children have been invited to observe the ceremonies.
