The First Annual Coal Days Celebration was a great success. There were games, contests, food, exhibits, truck show, entertainment and a free concert. Even the weather cooperated with the events of the day. All park events started at 11:00. At 5:00 there was a truck parade up Main Street where Virginia Dickert and Ken May were the honorary guests. After the parade, there was a concert at the park given by storyteller Clive Romney and his band Willingly.
There were many comments by attendees about what a wonderful day it was and asked if it will be an annual event? Officials at the Coal Mine and the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce are already planning on it. They have many new ideas and look forward to any suggestions. Overall it was a great day!
Please Join the Central Utah Public Health Department, along with many first responder agencies in the community as we practice our Mass vaccination plans. Flu shots will be offered in a fast and convenient “drive-thru” method. EMS Building 50 Westview Dr. Richfield on Oct 13,th from 12pm-6pm.
It is currently recommended that everyone over six months of age get immunized for seasonal flu; although young children, pregnant women, people over 65 years of age, and anyone with chronic health problems are especially encouraged to do so. Flu activity varies each year, often starting in the fall and peaking in February. Getting vaccinated is the first and most important step in protecting against this serious illness.
Flu vaccine is $25, and may be covered by your health insurance.
Sevier County is famous for several things, but the number one thing is the Rocky Mountain ATV Jamboree which runs Sept. 19th-Sept 23rd, 2016. Over 500 people are registered and will be visiting our communities throughout the next week. These visitors travel into our area from all over the world. As these travelers come into our area, remember to be kind, friendly and helpful. These impressions of how wonderful Salina is will spread and more people will visit our friendly and beautiful community.
Behind these scenes, thousands of hours, and thousands of dollars in donations have gone into the preparations of this great event. It takes several hundred volunteers, and many sponsors. When you see one of these volunteers or sponsors, give them a huge thank you for their sacrifice and kindness.
