West Jordan Council Supports Pioneer Days

Last year’s Merrill Osmond Youth Pioneer Production, honoring Utah’s diverse pioneer heritage, took the stage as part of the annual Utah Pioneer Days in West Jordan. The city council has approved funds for another production this year.

The city council has approved a resolution to sponsor the Utah Pioneer Days festival again this year. Justin Osmond, representing the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund, approached the council asking for a sponsorship payment equal to $59,300, along with a waiver of fees for the fourth annual event, which will be held July 23 and 24 in the city’s rodeo arena.

“This will be our fourth year working with West Jordan, and we love the way the community has supported the festival,” he said. “As always, we’ll be using proceeds to purchase hearing aids for 10 family members.”

He said those recipients will be named prior to the festival.

Osmond said this year’s event will focus completely on the musical production held in the rodeo arena. The celebration will not include activities in West Jordan City Park.

The city council approved the resolution by a 7-0 vote. The donation will be used for advertising, fireworks, entertainment and rental equipment for the production, which involves hundreds of local youth.

As part of the agreement, the use of city staff, services and waiver of fees will not exceed $42,550, pursuant to the city code.

Osmond said auditions for the production will be held later this year, with the time and location to be announced in the next few weeks.
