Lehi Heritage Day 2021 Honoree Karen Kirkpatrick holds a picture of her late husband, Paul, during the Honoree Celebration on Sept. 6, 2021. Paul Kirkpatrick served as a Lehi City police officer for 40 years while Karen Kirkpatrick served on the Chamber of Commerce and oversaw the city’s annual Easter Egg Hunt.

The deadline to make nominations for Lehi Heritage Day 2022 honorees is April 1. Forms can also be picked up at the Lehi Historical Society and Archives at 99 W. Main Suite 100. Nominations must include one living person who will attend the celebrations.

“We invite everyone to submit nominations for those they feel have made a big difference in our community,” said Lara Bangerter, director of the Archives. “We’ve celebrated coaches, musicians, Scout leaders, CIA volunteers and float builders, members of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, PTA presidents, long-time teachers, politicians and more. There are so many ways people have given back to our community.”

Ideal nominees are living and have lived many years in Lehi, although not necessarily currently, and have done much for the betterment of life in Lehi. After all nominations have been collected, the historical society studies the submissions and votes to determine who will be honored. Between four and eight couples or individuals are chosen each year to be honored.

Lehi City Councilman Paul Hancock present Lehi Heritage Day 2020 Honorees Layne and Diane Downs with their own brick in the Walk of Fame Garden in front of the Legacy Center. The couple has spent countless hours assisting with ticketing, gates and so forth at high school rodeo events. They also served on the Round-Up Week Parade Committee for more than 10 years.

“Although honorees are often shy about being honored, it always really good,” said Bangerter. “Friends and family come to congratulate them, and they end up seeing and talking with people they haven’t seen in years. It’s quite wonderful.”

A list of past honorees can be found here. Nomination forms should be sent to lehihistory@gmail.com or the Lehi Historical Society and Archives at 99 W. Main St., Suite 100, Lehi, UT 84043.

Put on by Lehi City and the historical society, Lehi Heritage Day celebrates Lehi’s finest contributors today as well as the city’s impressive past. The event begins with activities that celebrate the honorees and then wraps up with events honoring the past.

Lehi Heritage Day honorees are celebrated with a feature article in the Lehi Free Press prior to the actual event. Then, on Labor Day, honorees ride in the Lehi Heritage Day Showcase Parade up Main Street and are celebrated in a special program with the mayor and city council members. Most especially, each honoree is awarded their own brick in the Walk of Fame Garden in front of the Legacy Center at 123 N. Center. After the program, honorees move into the Senior Center for displays and a meet-and-greet for family and friends.

During this same time, historic displays, yummy food and a classic car show are also going on. This year’s Lehi Heritage Day theme will revolve around the beautiful old homes of Lehi. If you would like to feature a home or have questions about Lehi Heritage Day, please contact the Archives at 801-768-1570 or email at lehihistory@gmail.com.
