Located on a bench area of the Wasatch Mountain Range in northern Utah County, Highland was settled by homesteaders in the 1870s. John Poole built the first house in the area in 1875. Highland was officially incorporated as a city in 1977 and is now home to more than 18,000 residents. Highland is located at the mouth of American Fork Canyon and sits on a high plateau at the base of Mt. Timpanogos. Timpanogos Cave

Parade Grand Marshals Shauna & Woody Larson Highland City is proud to announce Shauna and Woody Larson as the 2019 Grand Marshals of the Highland Fling Parade. You can view them leading the parade on Saturday, August 3, at 10:00am which will travel from Highland Elementary to Heritage Park. Shauna was born and raised in Bountiful, UT, and Woody in Murray, UT. They were married in 1975 and formed a blended family with Shauna’s three children and Woody’s two children. Together, Shauna and Woody added two children to their family. They thought their family would never leave Bountiful, but in 1986 they had a feeling that they should move. After looking in various locations, Shauna and Woody felt a strong impression to move here to Highland. They instantly fell in love with the beautiful city and its surroundings. They got horses and loved raising their children here. Even now with their 25 grandchildren, 6 greatgrandchildren, and a few more on the way, Shauna and Woody “don’t ever want to move anywhere else” and are fortunate to have all of their family living close by, from Riverton to Mapleton. Woody made his career as a meat cutter, working for several stores. He has also owned a landscaping business and has been a Real Estate Consultant. In retirement, Woody finds joy in being an avid Family Historian and working with the Highland City Arts Council where he does most of the computer work by managing the website and doing plenty of the behind the scenes heavy lifting. Shauna found a love of art as a young child and she could often be found drawing and painting. In high school she was inspired by Mr. Jardin, her art teacher, and her passion

deepened. He saw Shauna’s potential and would enter her art in various art shows without her knowledge. To her surprise, she won show after show! This motivated her to continue her art and she was awarded a full scholarship at The Art Center School in California. Shauna ultimately chose to stay in Utah, and was able to continue her art studies at Weber State University, Utah Valley State College, and Brigham Youth University. She became an art teacher and loved her teaching career which lasted many years at Mount Jordan Junior High and American Fork Junior High. While at American Fork Junior High, Shauna had the opportunity to learn computer skills and start the school’s computer lab. This training eventually led to a new career path in Information Technology (IT) services. While her daytime IT career lasted 20 years, Shauna continued to teach art on the evenings and weekends. She couldn’t give up her passion for art and Woody was there for her every step of the way. “He was always there supporting me. He’s the wind beneath my wings and I couldn’t have done any of it without him! He’s always been there for me whether it was tending the kids, or making dinner, or helping with the house so that I could teach.” Woody continues to be a quiet supporter. While much of what he does is in the background, his support has allowed Shauna to fulfill all of her responsibilities as the Arts Council President for the past 9 years. Shauna became the President for the Highland City Arts Council in 2010. Although she hadn’t been part of the group before, Shauna saw there was a need and knew she was the one who needed to fill the role. Shauna thought she would serve for 2 years, but at that point just didn’t feel she was done. “I just love it! The kids, the people, the programs, I just love it.” Shauna has built the Council from one program to 15-20 programs and events. She is “the glue that keeps the Arts Council together.” –Kurt Ostler, Highland City Councilman. Luckily for Highland City, Shauna has yet to feel like she is done with her role as

President of the Arts Council. Under Shauna’s direction, the Arts Council has expanded to offering choirs, chamber groups, a bell choir, many forms of art classes, summer camps for kids, theater productions, art appreciation groups and so much more. They also aide in hosting City events such as cookie decorating at the Easter Egg Hunt and Craft Day with Santa. Shauna knew when she started this position that the Arts Council could do so much more for the arts and for Highland, and it has! With the existing volunteers, Shauna helped recruit more council members and together they have done an amazing job at bringing quality art programs and events to Highland City. Shauna has also put together an impressive Fine Art show during the Fling each year and makes sure that City Hall has a variety of changing art on display, much of which is done by local artists. Shauna and Woody have watched Highland grow from one corner store to what it is today and Shauna has made sure that the history of Highland has been preserved through art by commissioning artists to paint some of Highland’s original homes and buildings. She is also very thoughtful of the community and has had special art pieces done for our Library, Fire and Police Departments. Wherever Shauna is, you’ll find Woody by her side carrying paintings, moving stages, or passing out supplies. Linda Littlefield, Arts Council member, sums it up beautifully, “Shauna and Woodytwo of the most selfless and devoted people I know, who have an undying desire for the wellbeing of Highland City and its citizens.” Shauna and Woody have been an integral part of Highland City for 33 years and we are so fortunate to have them as part of our community! They are humble and state that they feel undeserving of this recognition, but their contributions to our City truly have been impactful! It is Highland’s privilege for us to honor them for their service to the City and all its residents.

The race is geared toward families who love the outdoors and adventure. Teams will consist of 3-7 members, at least one adult and up to six kids, although other combinations will be considered. There is no age limit for the kids, but the kids will have to be able to ride a bike on gravel roads. Younger kids may have to be transported in bike carriers and backpacks. Older kids (8 to 16) will probably have more fun, but smaller kids are welcome. The race will take approximately three hours to complete.

days for girls Mary Jean Ridges runs the Highland group of Day for Girls, an organization committed to giving girls around the world greater dignity, health and opportunity through menstrual health solutions and education. Around the world, girls and women resort to using rags, mattress stuffing, banana leaves, feathers, and even cow dung to manage their menstruation. Days for Girls provides a safe, beautiful, washable, and long-lasting alternative along with vital health education. Mary Jean opens her home each week on Tuesdays from 10:00am12:00pm to volunteers interested

and will be followed by the Grand Firework Show! You won’t want to miss this year’s entertainment! Celebrating What a Wonderful World we live in, we will end the week in England enjoying the exciting Beatles tribute

band Imagine: Remembering the Fab Four! From their convincing Liverpudian accents and Beatles wit to their pointed boots and totally fab gear, what you’ll experience during their show is pure magic! It’s like seeing the Beatles in concert for the first time, only better. Their two-hour show starts with a Beatlemania set followed by a Sgt. Pepper and later era, all performed with authentic instruments and costumes. The four lads joined in 1993 and have performed more than 800 shows across the United States and abroad. Over the years the group has had the privilege of sharing the stage with such notable acts as the Beach Boys, Jay Leno, Chicago, Glen Campbell, Badfinger, America, the Mandrells, the Shirelles, the Temptations, and the Buckinghams. Among their many highlights include their performance at the Nokia Sugarbowl in New Orleans for a national TV audience, being the first act to ever perform at the 20,000 seat USANA amphitheater in Salt Lake City, Utah, and their 21 shows at the Shanghai Music festival in May 2005. We are so excited to debut the newly formed Highland Fling Orchestra, led by Ellen Burns, who will accompany Imagine in the second half of the performance! We welcome you to see our show. . .where a splendid time is guaranteed for all!
