Maple Mountain High School’s FFA Chapter will participate in this year’s Festival of Trees. The Festival of Trees is in its 39th year and operates through a board of all women who volunteer their time to benefit the Primary Children’s Medical Center. Businesses and families throughout the state enter the festival displaying their talents and abilities in creating a unique Christmas tree. Over the years, the Festival of Trees has been copied throughout the United States and Canada; but, the Salt Lake City Festival of Trees is still called the “granddaddy” of them all.

On Friday, October 23, Springville High and Maple Mountain Choirs combined together to sing in a concert, “One Voice, One Heart.” This past summer Mrs. Leanna Crockett , SHS Choir Director, and Mr. Cory Mendenhall, MMHS Choir Director, traveled with some of their choir students to Venice, Italy. At this inspirational venue, the idea was created to combine Maple Mapleton and Springville choirs to sing Vivaldi’s Gloria. “It was a great opportunity to bring all the kids back together to sing once more,” said Crockett.
