We were fortunate to attend Bountiful's Pioneer Parade on July 20. It had a wonderful family friendly atmosphere. One of the entrants was drawn by a team of horses who chose to relieve themselves just a bit north of our front row seats. There seemed to be no clean up wagon.
We all became increasingly concerned as we saw a group of young gymnasts approaching doing cartwheels and back flips. Suddenly, a man with his teenage son ran out into the street armed only with an empty pizza box and some sturdy cardboard fans that had been handed out on the parade route. They hurriedly cleaned up, as well as possible, the offensive material before the young girls and the two thousand stripling warriors came marching through. The crowd cheered. It was absolutely gallant.
Thank you to good citizens who really are every-day heroes.
