Lehi to honor former Fifth Ward members during Heritage Day
This year the annual celebration had a theme of "Early Industry." The community is invited to dress up in period dress and to enjoy the day's events which will begin with a showcase parade along Main Street from 400 East to Center Street at 2 p.m.
The event honored several Lehi residents who have provided service to the community over the years. This year's honorees are Phillip and Mickie (Maxine) Black, David and Kim Butterfield, Edward and Kaye Collins, Dale and Karen Ekins, Phillip and Carol Gray, Mel and Lueen Kirkham, Stan and Peggy Lewis, Mike and Beckie Southwick, Jim and LaVee Hadfield Strong and Bert and Taunya Wilson.
At the Legacy Center garden, there was a walk of fame where a brick with the names of each of these couples were laid. Then, from 4 to 7 p.m. there was a free classic car show, old tractors, homemade hamburgers, displays, exhibits, activities and entertainment.
Heritage Day began in 2014 as a way to showcase historic Lehi. Each year a different neighborhood or historic district is highlighted. This year the people of the old Fifth Ward are being spotlighted. Heritage Day is presented by the Lehi Historical Society and Archives.
