LET'S DO THIS!!!

Are you saving up all your loose change (& paper cash too) in a mason jar for our Quarters for Christmas Event on Saturday, December 2nd? Hope so! That morning at 11 a.m. EVERYONE will be meeting for a Pot Luck Brunch in the Ballroom of our Old School Community Center. The City will be contributing the budget usually marked for our town Christmas Party to Quarters for Christmas! KSL will be coming to Spring City that morning to feature us on their broadcasts! You'll all want to be there when they come down here to receive what we've all contributed! And if asked -- they will even bring Chopper 5!!! But that will depend on the amount of support we have for this. So feel free to give me lots of feedback. Call Yvonne @ (801) 466-2898. We have invited organizations in our City -- & nearby cities too -- to participate in raising funds for this worthy event. There is a gallon paint can on the counter of City Hall office with this label for you to empty you mason jar into as you keep filling it. There's also another labelled can on the office desk at the Spring City Elementary so encourage your kids to help by dropping coins into it! Contributions to our Quarters for Christmas fundraiser will go to help families in our county.

Sports & Recreation

We are just finishing up our regular season for Youth Soccer. Our 3-4 Grade team has only lost one game this year so we want to congratulate them on a successful year.  Thanks to Traci Allred for coaching this year's team. The kids have improved a lot and hopefully had fun playing. We hope they finish out the season strong and then it's on to postseason play. Good luck team!! The Flag Football season just began last week and the first game for the 4-6 grade league put our two Spring City teams facing off against each other. Teams are coached by Ryan Farr, Nate Rostron, Bobbie Olsen, Shane Allred, and Pete Allred. It was a good learning experience for both teams and we wish them success for this year. We also have a 1-3 grade team and we appreciate Devon Krebbs agreeing to coach this team. They also played their first game last Wednesday night and ended up winning their game against Mt. Pleasant. Follow our Facebook Page "Spring City Sports and Recreation" for updates and more information.

Friends of Historic Spring City

With the Spring City School Community Center restored, now in use as city offices and the DUP Museum, the Friends of Historic Spring City are exploring what we might do next to benefit Spring City. We’ve just turned over funds to the city to retire the 2015 CIB loan; there is still a balance on the 2011 CIB loan that we’re responsible to repay. We’ll continue to raise funds for that, and we hope to do some additional projects that will have a positive impact on the historic buildings in town and the local economy. We hope that the ballroom in the Community Center, as well as the 3rd floor studio spaces and the 2nd floor office spaces will be rented to generate funds for the city. If you missed the dedication in May and haven’t seen the building interior, be sure to stop by for a look—it is open Monday through Thursday during City office hours, and Saturday for visitors to the Museum. Thank you for your help and support in reaching this milestone!
