An Invitation to Share your Story
Springdale has been welcoming people home for over 150 years. We invite you to submit an essay about how you or someone you know found a welcome here and ‘came home’ to Springdale – whether for the first time, the last time, or some other time or in some other way completely. We appreciate that ‘coming home’ isn’t strictly a physical experience.
You don’t have to leave to have a profound “I’m home” experience. We hope you’ll share your stories with us. We would love to get so many we have to find a publisher! Until then, we’ll print them here on this site and in the newsletter.
Stories for our newsletter need to be about 500 words long, which isn't very long, but stories for this page can be longer. Send to: Darci Carlson, Springdale Town Clerk , PO Box 187, Springdale UT 84767 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
