Title History and Celebrations in Our City
Description was incorporated as a town on July 21, 1885. with Rees R. Llewellyn, A.J. Aagard, Robert L. Johnson, Lars Nielson, H.C. Hansen Bogh, James Aagard, and George Carter making up the Town Board. January 3, 1910, was a big celebration, when the town was incorporated as a city. The first five mayors of the city were A. H. Anderson, James L. Nielson. John J. Oldroyd. Henry Jackson. H.P. Olsen. We have had, to the present, twenty-five mayors in our city. Mayor Dean Hansen being the present one. The city has always celebrated the state holidays, the first one, Statehood, and before and after. July 4th and 24th... Pioneer Day. Our city has a holiday of its own to celebrate: Lamb Day! This year every program will be planned around the Centennial. The first one will be held at the Daughters of Utah Pioneers (DUP) building Friday, July 19, at 5:00 p.m., where it is planned for the rededication of the building by the Church Presiding Bishop H. David Burton. Everyone is invited to this very special program. The building has been owned by the LDS Church as the Ward Tithing Office since 1906 and was leased to the DUP as long as it was well kept. Fountain Green City now owns the building and the grounds. Much work and improvement has been done on the building this past year in preparation for the celebration and rededication. They have gas heat, electric lights, newly remodeled porch, railing, fence painted, and new interior painting; so many things have been, and are still being done. These things have been planned and hoped for over the years, and with the help of the city. Lions Club. Sportsman's Club, officers, members and so much help from the city councilman, Lewis Rasmussen, the work will be completed for this 1996 holiday celebration. Mr. Rasmussen has had a great deal of interest in this building, and has had help from many people, including the Young Women's and Young Men's organization in the city. The DUP contributes much to the people and city. They keep the building and grounds attractive. They have erected three pioneer monuments, one being a monument in recognition of the young Lewis Lund boy who was killed by the Indians. The work of getting the monument restored and moved to the DUP lot, was by Kim Bailey for his Eagle Project in 1991. At that time, his grandmother. Hazel Bailey, was Captain of the Uinta Camp. Mrs. Bailey, as Captain, and former Captain. Devona Crowther. worked to keep the lot and building in good condition. Mayor Dean 48
