LAYTON -- The search for "Hometown Heroes," specifically Layton residents who are Korean War veterans or who were instrumental in the Korean War effort, is under way in preparation for the city's annual Fourth of July festivities.
The city is searching for individuals to be honored as part of its annual Voices of Liberty Patriotic Concert and Liberty Days July 4 parade.
The recognition will include the honorees' names and a short biography being read at the concert. The free concert will be at 7 p.m. July 1, in the Ed Kenley Centennial Amphitheater, 403 N. Wasatch Drive.
The honorees will also be recognized during the city's July 4 parade by riding on the city float.
Hometown Hero nomination forms are available at all First National Banks in Layton, or the city's Parks & Recreation offices next to Surf-N-Swim, 465 N. Wasatch Drive.
As part of the Liberty Days celebration, the city is also looking for choirs to perform at the concert.
Those interested are asked to call 801-336-3921 or 801-336-3903.
