The American Fork Police Department wants to spend the next year with you - for a good cause.
The department has put together a 1991 calendar featuring officers and winners of the 1990 American Fork Steel Days Baby Contest. Proceeds from sales of the calendar will be used to support summer youth programs."We are not trying to generate any income from this," said Police Chief John D. Durrant. "What we are trying to do is create a vehicle from this where (organizations that) need money can generate it."
Summer youth programs include the Miss American Fork Pageant and Little League Baseball, Durrant said.
The officers and baby contest winners were photographed at Fitzen Mansion, a historic home in American Fork.
The Police Department sponsored the Steel Days Baby Contest last summer, and while taking photographs of the winners came up with the idea for the calendar.
"It just kind of meshed," Durrant said. "We are very pleased with it . . . The community should support things like (youth programs) but you can't expect people to just give. We thought with this calendar we could generate income and turnout a quality product people would want."
The calendar, which sells for $8, is available at the American Fork Police Department and at City Hall. The calendar can be ordered by phone - 756-6011 - and will be delivered free to residents.
Two Boy Scout troops also will be selling the calendar door-to-door during coming weeks as a fund raiser.
"We are committed to the youth and feel this effort is the least we can do to support them," Durrant said.
