West Haven Days
We had another fantastic celebration last month. It’s hard to believe how big this event has become. Our grand marshals, Mike and Donna Geilmann, taught us that it all began with a citizen breakfast at the arena bowery. Now it’s a four day event that attracts thousands of people. We have it all here in West Haven – quilters, runners, cyclists, cowboys, car show enthusiasts, and the list goes on. Thanks to all volunteers on our events committee, our youth council members and their advisers, and our CERT team. Also, Brock Randall, and Randy & Colleen Hunter spend countless hours before, during, and after the event to make it a success. Thanks to our staff, our deputies, and our firefighters for their support. Most of all, thank you to our amazing residents who support West Haven Days every year!
City Hall Seminar
Our next seminar will be held on Wednesday, August 29th. We will be having a presentation on cycling safety by Bike Utah. This bicycle safety program for the Utah Department of Public Safety provides education and enforcement to enhance bicycle safety throughout the state. Their most recognizable effort is the Road Respect Program to promote safe lawful behavior between cyclists and motorists on the road. They have Road Respect Ambassadors who participate in local rides to help lead by example in following the rules of the road and discussing bike safety with other participants. They also work with local health departments, police agencies, and non-profits to support them in their efforts to provide safety education for cyclists. Please mark your calendar for this FREE event.
