Highland Fling Days 2014 - 5


MAYOR & CITY COUNCIL MESSAGE Tradition, community and family - Highland City leaders believe these are some of the aspects that make the annual Highland Fling Days celebration a valuable part of the city’s offerings to its residents. “I believe traditions are really important for communities, for families, traditions that promote the values that you want, and the Fling is one of those traditions that I believe is important for our community. It brings us together, it creates a family environment which is important for the community, it provides wholesome entertainment, it provides opportunities for volunteers,” said Highland city councilman Brian Braithwaite, “The values of the city are family, community, a sense of community, as well as many other values, but that is what the Fling brings forward.” The Highland community has been conducting a summer celebration for more than 100 years in one form or another, said Highland Mayor Mark Thompson. For many years, the celebration was oriented around and organized by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Now the city oversees Highland Fling Days, which includes activities such as a car show, a movie in the park, the annual Highland Games, a Grand Parade, live entertainment and vendors booths. The celebration brings the community together as residents are attracted to the various events. “It’s a great thing because it’s the one time of the year when the city can get together in the context of enjoyment and some competitions,” said Councilman Rod Mann, adding that his wife and children have enjoyed entering the art exhibit and contest. Walking through the booths, sampling the food, listening to the music and spending time with friends are all enjoyable parts of Highland Fling Days, Mann said. Often, people 6 - Highland Fling Days 2014

will get to know people within their church congregation, he said, but the Fling “gives you a chance to get to know people outside those boundaries.” “It’s a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy great food, great entertainment and the ability to meet their neighbors,” said Councilman Tim Irwin. Many aspects of the community are brought together during Highland Fling Days, from local businesses to high school students. “There’s something for every age,” he said. “The new residents can feel part of the community and the long-time residents can meet their new neighbors.” Just as important as bringing the community together is bringing families together, said Mayor Thompson, and the Fling does both. Each summer, many children of Highland residents who have moved away from the city come back to spend time with their family and enjoy Highland Fling Days. “I think the family element really is what Highland is,” Thompson said. “It brings family back home.” Councilwoman Jessie Schoenfeld said Highland Fling Days adds to the hometown feeling that already exists in Highland. The events are growing, and she encouraged residents to support this year’s activities. “It shows our interest and our belief in family values,” Schoenfeld said. “To me, it’s like, ‘Come home to Highland.’”

HISTORY OF HIGHLAND

Located on a bench area of the Wasatch Mountain Range in northern Utah County, Highland was settled by homesteaders in the 1870s. Some of the first settlers chose the name Highland because the area reminded them of the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. Highland was officially incorporated as a city in 1977 and is home to about 16,000 residents. Highland is located at the mouth of American Fork Canyon and sits on a high plateau at the base of Mt. Timpanogos. It is home to numerous trails, including a portion of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, a trail following the shoreline formed by ancient Lake Bonneville that will eventually stretch to more than 280 miles. Timpanogos Cave National Monument, a collection of caverns accessed by a 1.5-mile hike up a mountainside in American Fork Canyon, is accessed through Highland, as is the Alpine Scenic Loop, a beautiful drive winding through the mountains east of the city. Inside the city are a variety of parks for residents to enjoy, including the Town Center Splash Pad which is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day each year. Residents come together to celebrate the founding of their community during Highland Fling Days, an annual week-long celebration full of activities that include a grand parade, a fine art show, a 5K run, entertainment and fireworks.

GRAND MARSHALS Jess & Ann Adamson Jess Adamson’s roots run deep in Highland. His paternal great-grandfathers, Alexander Adamson and George Yost Myers, both homesteaded on the Highland Bench in the late 1800s. Alexander was credited with naming Highland because it reminded him of his native Scotland he left in 1861. Jess is named after his grandmother Jessie Myers Adamson who was born here in 1878 and is thought to be the first girl born in Highland. Jess’ grandparents, David and Jessie Adamson, raised their 10 children here on their Highland farm long before the city’s incorporation in 1977. Their home was where the old city hall is located. They all worked hard to make a living on their farm of 140 acres. David and Jessie always considered their best crop to be their children. Jess and his wife Ann built their home in 1977 just across the street from where his grandparents lived on a part of the

Adamson farm. They have raised their six children here, making six generations that have called Highland home. Jess has loved serving the community. He served on the Highland City Planning Commission from 1993 through 1997. He

GRAND MARSHALS served two terms as Highland’s sixth mayor from January 1998 through December 2005. During this time, Highland’s population grew from 5,000 to 15,000 residents. This was a great contrast to the 200 or so hardy souls who lived here during his grandparents’ time. New growth brought many new challenges but also attracted many wonderful families who have strengthened and blessed the community. Mayor Adamson has always espoused a vision of Highland where he knows good people are guided to settle here. Highland is a special place that people can call home — because it has always felt that way. He has encouraged all to “Take Pride in Highland” by looking for opportunities to make Highland a better place through building up the community and making it a community where residents can live together in harmony. He is grateful for the blessings residents enjoy through living here. He always considered himself to be a servant of the people and not

a politician. He is thankful for all who have served Highland — before, during and after his administration. It is the good people of Highland who make Highland such a great place to live and call home. Jess and Ann keep busy taking care of their big yard and keeping track of their children and 11 grandchildren and all their doings. They are both busy with church service and all the miscellaneous things that come with retirement. Jess retired as a Sergeant Major (SGM) from the Army National Guard after 34 years of service. He still keeps his ear to the ground concerning city issues ... but most of all he still loves to visit and keep up with everyone. You can see him out and about on his bike almost every day and find Ann in the yard making things beautiful as they both continue to Take Pride in Highland! Mayor Mark S. Thompson will present the Grand Marshal award on Saturday, August 2, on the Heritage Park Stage at 12:00 p.m.
