Mission StatementCommunity Involvement
American Fork has prided itself on a high standard of community involvement. The most popular of them all is the Fireman’s Memorial Day Breakfast. In the mid-1940s the Fire Ladies Auxiliary began the annual Firemen’s Memorial Day Breakfast. It was held in the original fire station with the firemen and their wives providing electric frying pans, camp stoves and grills in the upstairs room of the small station. Here the meal was cooked and served to hundreds of residents who climbed the steep steps and waited their turn at the tables. This tradition has continued to the present day, and over 1,000 citizens are served each Memorial Day.
