Every Strawberry Days Smith Rexall Drug would sponsor a float and it was a highlight of the parade experience for everyone involved. The corner of Main and Center Street was officially their parade viewing spot. Pleasant Grove has many wonderful qualities that have impacted Dave and Dora’s lives, but it is the great people that have anchored their hearts to the amazing city of Pleasant Grove.
