Marc and Jessica Sanderson
by Mary Burgin

Marc and Jessica Sanderson have been selected as the Grand Marshals for the 2017 Strawberry Days celebration. Both have been raised in Pleasant Grove, as well as raising their 4 sons and a niece here.  Marc served as the Fire Chief for several years for the city. They said they both fondly remember Strawberry Days. Jessica said that she always got a new outfit each year. They said they would go down to the upcoming parade route a few days early and place their lawn chairs there to reserve a spot. The carnival coming to the downtown park was always a highlight. Jessica said, “I remember just thinking how great it was to have something fun happening every day and to have what seemed like the whole town out celebrating all of the festivities!” They said it has been a happy memory for themselves as well as their children and now their grandchildren.
