A Leap of Faith and a Little Heavy Lifting

At the start of a world-wide health pandemic, Justin Fuchs took a leap of faith and opened Iron Backs gym to share his love of health and fitness with the valley. From the beginning, the mission of the gym has been to offer an environment of support and encouragement, where anyone could feel comfortable showing up as they are in the present moment at an affordable cost. Justin expressed, “I wanted less people without dads and granddads because of health issues. That’s something we can control . . . health and fitness we can…

Santa Claus Teams up with Local Law Enforcement

The dim morning light reflected off of the year's first snow in an icy glow and added just the right Christmas ambiance. The Homestead Resort parking lot displayed several patrol and first responder vehicles, foreshadowing what was taking place inside. In one of the conference rooms, about 45 children from around the valley were gathered, surrounded by members of the Wasatch County Sheriff's Office, the Heber City Police Department, the Department of Natural Resources, and the Wasatch County Fire Department.

Chamber of Commerce Christmas Gala 2021

The Chamber of Commerce hosted the party of the year, possibly even the decade, at their 4th annual Christmas gala on December 2nd!

Come together it takes a community

Knowing the children have full bellies and a warm hand to hold might make a spectator feel as if they have stumbled onto a paved, urban version of The Grinch’s Whoville; cue the singing. The children hear a soft buzzing — quiet at first and a bit confusing but all the more exciting as it moves closer. Still watching intently they soon realize that who they’ve been waiting for — Santa Clause — is arriving in a . . . helicopter? A bit of an untraditional form of transportation perhaps, but no less special for these kids as…
