Title History and Celebrations in Our City
Description will be pictures of early Fountain Green buildings, people, and places, with narration. The people of this city have always been patriotic. The early sheep men increased the number of flags being flown on holidays, with the beautiful American Flag on every corner of Main Street and almost every home flying the Stars and Stripes. The parade will feature some of Fountain Green history, especially the city float to represent our Big Springs and meadows. Our Wool City Band was always a favorite, and its music and members will always be remembered. The original band was a favorite because of the music they played. They were asked one lime to play in the 24th of July parade in Salt Lake City. This year the city is trying for another Wool City Band, with the younger generation practicing for the occasion. A special feature again this year are the softball games, all very popular, especially the tournament with the men from Fountain Green and those former residents who love to come home and play. The Co-ed, or family softball tournament, is preparing for exciting games. The championship games for both tournaments will be held on Saturday evening, There are the activities at the park, the lamb show which is gaining in popularity, the delicious lamb sandwiches, and all the celebration under the direction of the head committee, with Louis Cook. Chairman. Lewis Rasmussen. Robert Hansen. Denise Aagard. Lola Stewart, Susan S. Allred. and many others. Another big and looked for celebration will be the Centennial Wagon Train that will be going through our area and city Saturday June 15th and 16th. Volunteers will help to house and feed these drivers of horses and wagons, or those walking. These courageous folks will travel from Logan to Cedar City, over 400 miles, more easily than our pioneers traveled, but still a big challenge in this day of 1996. It will be exciting to see the parade and visit with the people. UTAH. THIS IS THE PLACE Utah! helping all to succeed Utah. People working together. Utah! With its pioneer spirit Utah. What a great place to be Utah! What a legacy Utah, with its focus on the family. UTAH. THIS IS THE PLACE 50
