The Steele Days Are Here!

July is a fine time to live in American Fork. Everybody loves Steel Days -- unless, of course, you're Mark Steele, and then you prefer Steele Days.

Mark likes many other things about American Fork, too. Today I'm reprinting his "bucket list" which he posted on Facebook. Thanks to Mark for reminding us about all there is to love in American Fork!
