(24th of July) Pioneer Day Parade

The parade is a way for businesses and groups in and around the town of Enterprise to remind us all why we are here, to help and support each other. We are a strong community WHEN we all stand together. The theme this year was all about the pioneers. What is your pioneer story? What made you the pioneer you are today? Enterprise2day is the first online newspaper that is not only telling a story now, but years from now will be the history of this town. We hope you all continue to be strong pioneers and stand up for what you believe, and open your hearts to your neighbors and others in this great town because they may need a friendly smile or waive. We are grateful for those pioneers that went before us and sacrificed so much for us today. Remember those pioneers in all you do and continue to make them proud.

Thank you to Melanie Slack for doing a great job organizing the parade this year. She lined the floats up differently and had everyone moving right on time. Also a HUGE “THANK YOU” to Melinda Bowler for taking all of these amazing pictures. What a big sacrifice it is to give up sitting with family to come and help us.. THANK YOU!!


Grand Marshall – Leon Bowler







 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


ENTERPRISE PIONEER DAY PARADE (Narration)

#1 FLAGS
Please stand and pay respect to our nation’s flag. Our flag bearers today are Shelby Sorensen, Daisy Sorensen, and Lydia Probst. They are carrying the American flag, the Utah state flag and the Enterprise city flag.

#2 GRAND MARSHALL
The Grand Marshall for our parade this year is Leon Bowler. Leon is married to Pauline Truman Bowler. They have 3 children, 11 grandchildren, and 28 great-grandchildren – with 2 on the way.
Leon has served in church and community. He was Elder’s Quorum President, Sunday School President, Stake Missionary, Member of the Bishopric, High Councilman, and taught Primary for 20 years.
Leon was on the Enterprise City Council at the time municipal power was started. He applied for and got an allocation for Enterprise.
He managed Dixie Escalante Electric for 55 years. He has served and is still serving on boards that were instrumental in building the Bonanza Power Plant in the Uintah Basin and the Intermountain Power Plant. 
Leon served on the Washington County Planning Commission for 26 years.
Leon was a pioneer in our community in a couple of ways. Leon and Elwin Hadley put a generator and antenna on the Black Ridge (above the blue water tanks). Each night, Leon hiked up the hill to the generator and put gas in it. People with T.V.’s could watch until the gas ran out. This was the start of T.V. in Enterprise. The 2nd way he was a pioneer is that he dug, by hand, a trench from diagonal street, to the cemetery, and across to his father’s grave. Leon and Pauline then planted grass. This was the first grass in the cemetery. They watered and maintained it for many years.
