Welcome to the 2018 Highland Fling, our annual city celebration. This year we celebrate our city’s spirit of serving“We Rise by Lifting Others.” Throughout the week we will have a number of service opportunities which you can be involved in that directly impact others both locally and globally. While we figuratively rise when we help others, we will also be able to literally rise during our Hot Air Balloon Festival. All events during the week will have a service component. We will be getting an early start by holding collection drives beginning on July 14th. We will be collecting various items to create food, hygiene, baby and school kits to benefit individuals in Utah County through Tabitha’s Way. We’ll also provide local service opportunities to do yard work for Highland residents who are unable to do so themselves. We are teaming up with Courage Reins on

Parade Grand Marshals EVENT DETAILS Grand Marshals Presentation/ Opening CeremonieS

Jay W. Franson & Gwyn Cox Franson

Date: Saturday, Aug. 4 Time: Noon Place: Heritage Park

“Every man gives his life for what he believes. Every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing, and so they give their lives to little or nothing. One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it…and then it’s gone.” – Jeanne d’Arc (Joan of Arc) Highland City has named Jay and Gwyn Franson, former Mayor and Councilwoman respectively of Highland, as Grand Marshals of the 2018 Highland Fling Grand Parade. The parade will be held on Saturday, Aug. 4, at 10 am. The Fransons have spent a lifetime in the service of their community and embody the 2018 Highland Fling theme: “We Rise by Lifting Others.” Jay was born in Elko, Nevada and Gwyn in Price, Utah in 1948. This year 2018 marks their 50th wedding anniversary. They met in a math class their senior year at Richfield High School where Jay was student body president. Jay then left to pursue an education at Dixie Junior College on a basketball scholarship while Gwyn attended BYU her freshman year also with a scholarship, joining Jay at Dixie the following year. After completing their associate degrees together, they married Sept. 7, 1968. They left that same week for Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio, again on a basketball scholarship for Jay where both continued their studies. In 1970 Jay graduated with a BS in mathematics after which they returned to Utah where Jay completed a degree in civil engineering at USU in 1973. During this time they also began their family. They have three boys (Lon, Eric, and Kevin) and two girls (Janell and Alayne) and 17 grandchildren. Jay spent most of the first 15 years of his career working for the Bureau of Reclamation in Colorado, Arizona and Utah

with one year in management training in Washington, D.C. They first moved to Highland in 1981 as he continued working for the BoR. He left Highland in 1986 for Arizona to work on a project. Then in 1988 he formed the civil engineering firm of Franson & Associates in American Fork while settling permanently in Highland. Gwyn returned to BYU in 1994 to complete a degree in elementary education and retired in 2016 after 18 years of teaching at Highland Elementary. One of their joys today is running into her former students whose names she still remembers. Both Jay and Gwyn have shown throughout their lives a willingness to serve wherever and whenever asked in order to make their community a better place. In 1989 Jay was invited to serve on the Highland Water Company Board of Directors and elected chairman where he served for the next 13 years. Gwyn became involved in the grass roots of nonpartisan politics in Highland, accepting a request to run for city council where she served two terms from 1998-2006. In 2008 Gwyn was also recruited to run for the State Legislature. In 2002 Jay was invited by Governor Mike Leavitt to serve on the Governor’s Water Board where he served until 2012. In 2005 he ran for Mayor of Highland where he served from 20062010, during which time the Highland City

Hall, Library, Justice Court, Fire Station and City Center Park (including the popular splash pad) were built, all of which are assets to the community. Residents benefit today from Jay’s engineering background as seen in the improved road design on city arterials and our water system. By invitation Jay served on the North Utah County Water Conservancy District board from 2008-2015, and then on the North Pointe Solid Waste Special Service District from 2010 to the present. Scouting has been a lifetime love for Jay. His leadership involvement began as a Varsity Scout leader and continued for nearly 40 years. He and Gwyn have also devoted much of their lives in service to the LDS Church, from Jay’s calling to serve in a Bishopric, the sweet experience as a High Councilor assigned to the State Developmental Center, as Bishop of the Highland 5th Ward, a calling as Stake Young Men’s President, and Stake Executive Secretary. Gwyn has also served in many positions of responsibility in the LDS Church, as Relief Society President, Young Women’s President, Primary President, in the Stake Primary Presidency, Sunday School teacher and Institute instructor. She also served in the PTA at both the elementary and high school levels. During their over thirty- seven years of service in Highland, they have loved seeing it become the beautiful community it is today and have made wonderful friends along the way. They are grateful they could “give back” and encourage others to be willing to say “yes” when invited to serve. Written by Claudia Stillman

We Rise by Lifting Others: Service Projects Highland is filled with an amazing spirit of giving and serving others, thus the theme “We Rise by Lifting Others” was chosen for our 2018 city celebration. The Highland Fling has teamed up with local and global organizations to provide excellent opportunities to serve. Four main projects will be going on prior and throughout Fling week: Collection Drives, Yard Work for Highland Residents in need, Hygiene Kits for girls in 3rd world countries (Days for Girls), & helping those in 3rd world countries to become self-reliant (Elevita). See details below of each project and please join us to lift others!

Collection Drives Thanks to the LDS Highland Stake who is coordinating efforts for our collection drives! Collections will benefit Tabitha’s Way, which provides food and supplies to an average of 5,000 individuals monthly. In addition to food, we will be collecting items for Baby Kits, School Kits and Hygiene Kits. Did you know that 1 in 5 children in Utah County are food insecure? Did you know that over 78,000 people in Utah County are at or below the federal poverty line? You can help!!! See below for what/ when/where you can donate.

Kit Assembly: Join us at Heritage Park on Saturday, August 4 to help assemble the Hygiene/Baby/School Kits from 2:30pm – 5:30pm 5 Contact: Don Nicol dnicol84@gmail.com 801-836-6087 Participant

Days for Girls Project Mary Jean Ridges runs the Highland group of Days for Girls, an organization committed to giving girls around the world greater dignity, health and opportunity through menstrual health solutions and education. Pads are a small thing that make a big difference. Without a solution to manage her monthly cycle: • ​1 in 10 girls in Sub-Saharan Africa... • 113 million adolescent girls in India... • 30% of girls in rural Brazil... will miss school this year. 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. Drop-out rates in a Uganda school went from 25% to 4% after one year of

EVENT DETAILS access to DfG Kits. School retention rates for girls in Kenya reached 96% after receiving DfG Kits, up from a 75% average. Mary Jean opens her home each week on Tuesdays from 10-12 to volunteers interested in helping with this great cause.  During the Highland Fling, she will open her home for a special evening.  Sewing machines and sergers are provided for those eager to help in making the Days for Girls kit components, and several non-sewing tasks are also available.  This evening session will also include training for those interested in holding their own Days for Girls service events. Financial donations are always accepted and greatly appreciated.  We also accept flannel fabric that is dark colored stain hiding, preferably geometric shapes or flowers, as well as 10 quilters cotton in a variety of colors, also preferably geometric shapes and bright happy prints.

Proudly Serving Our Community Since 1891 The Past, Present, and Future of Central Bank


entral Bank has been serving Utah County for over 127 years. We are proud of our history and look forward to building our community in the future. We believe our progress is directly based on how dedicated we are to caring for the individual needs of the people and communities we serve. We are committed to caring for our customers and our community—now and in the future, as we have in the past.

managed, Springville Banking Company was the first bank in Utah to qualify for FDIC insurance on deposits. It was also one of the few banks that did not require Government Debenture Capital during the Great Depression.


The Organization of the Springville Banking Company Until 1891, the local townsfolk of Springville, Utah stored their gold at the Packard Brother’s store, Deal Brothers & Mendenhall Company, or H.T. Reynolds and Company. These stores thought that it would be wise to establish a bank, for security reasons. On October 17, 1891, Milan Packard (great-great-grandfather of our president, Mark Packard) Provo, Center St. and University Ave.

The Organization of the State Bank of Provo In 1902 sixteen men organized the State Bank of Provo. These men had incredibly diverse backgrounds—sheep farmer, plumber, attorney etc. However, they all wanted to find a safe, stable place to save and borrow money. From its founding, the State Bank of Provo grew steadily. The officers and board members prided themselves on their reputation as the bank that knew every customer as a friend.

Central Bank is Born Springville Banking Company, 1891

established the Springville Banking Company with the help of Deal Brothers & Mendenhall Company and H.T. Reynolds & Company. The bank continued to expand gradually, and in 1924, officers and directors of the Springville Banking Company were instrumental in attracting the Columbia Steel Mill to build a new location on the Provo-Springville border. This mill changed Springville Banking Company’s future. The bank started to grow steadily and substantially from then on. Ably


On July 1, 1966, the Springville Banking Company and the State Bank of Provo merged under the new name of Central Bank and Trust. This was not simply a union of the two oldest banks in Utah County, but a consolidation of strength that would provide greater lending power, more financial stability, and superior services. Central Bank opened its Spanish Fork office in 1969, followed shortly by offices in the Provo Riverside PIaza in 1971, and Mapleton in 1972. Continued expansion brought offices to Payson in 1980, Orem in 1982, American Fork in 1996, Lehi in 2003, and Pleasant Grove in 2008.

When the economy began to falter in 2008, Central Bank relied on its reserves and did not take any government “bailout” or TARP money. Our long history of fiscal responsibility has allowed us to weather the economic downturns of the last century and is evidence that we have truly remained strong, safe, and secure since our founding in 1891.

Present As six-time winners of the Daily Herald’s Best of Utah Valley “Best Bank” award, Central Bank measures up in providing excellent products and services to customers. We are committed to offering all modern banking services and conveniences—mobile banking, online bill pay, advanced technology ATMs, and online financial management tools—without letting go of the personal, friendly touch that has been important to us since the beginning. The opening of our Traverse Mountain office in April 2018 marked the beginning of a new customer service experience at Central Bank. Anyone who walks in the door of our new office will receive concierge-like assistance from one of our Customer Relationship Bankers. Rather than segmenting the responsibilities of teller and customer service representative, Customer Relationship Bankers can help our customers in a more seamless fashion. We are confident this change will provide our customers with a more streamlined, convenient, and connected banking experience.

Central Bank Downtown Provo, present day

Aside from providing exceptional banking services, Central Bank also makes valuable contributions that strengthen our communities. Our employees spend many hours each year participating in local programs and the bank donates to many educational, non-profit, and civic organizations throughout Utah County.

Future We value relationships and the communities we serve. Our approach to banking is guided by the personal relationships we build with our clients. At Central Bank, you get the modern banking products and services you need with the service and responsiveness only a community bank can offer.

Central Bank Traverse Mountain, Lehi

“Where we are headed in the future is no different from where we have always been headed. Everything we do and all the decisions we make are focused on our goal of remaining an independent, community-oriented bank” says bank president, Mark Packard. The mission of Central Bank has been and will always be to remain independent and focus on building our communities. Our standards and mission statements remain. We will work: • To meet or exceed the expectations of our customers by providing personal services and competitive products and services. • To create an enjoyable working environment that will encourage an atmosphere where employees and customers will feel welcome and comfortable while at Central Bank. • To remain independent by adhering to time-tested banking values so that we may continue to provide service to our community, to our customers and to each other. We are honored to have been able to serve our customers and the Utah Valley community since 1891, and we’re excited to continue to provide quality customer service that will benefit our customers in the future.

Featured Band: Many Miles Drawing inspiration from their home of Zion National Park, Many Miles sound is best described as a blend of John Mayer, Amy Winehouse, Dave Matthews Band and Adele. The story of Many Miles began when Swedish Singer/Songwriter Victoria Lagerström found American Singer/Songwriter Dave Tate’s music online and reached out to him to collaborate. Lagerström travelled to Utah to record the duo’s first album. The two fell in love and were married three weeks later in Zion. Victoria never used her return ticket to Sweden. After several albums, several European tours as a duo, and honing their craft, living in the music scenes of Austin, Portland, and Salt Lake City the couple returned to Zion to form Many Miles with some

of Utah’s best session players. With two powerhouse songwriters/lead vocalists Many Miles connects with a wide range of audiences with their funky soul/ pop/rock sound and unique blend of styles. The band released its debut self-titled album in the Spring of 2017 to international critical acclaim. Many Miles music was recently featured in a commercial on all national and global American Airlines flights.
