Bishop was born and raised in Kaysville and graduated from Davis High. His family lived near the former Clover Club factory site at 200 North and Fairfield. A graduate of the University of Utah, he has lived and taught school in Brigham City for more than 30 years. He was a longtime member of the Utah State Legislature, serving as Speaker of the House.
As Utah's First District congressman, he serves on several House committees, including Armed Services, Resources and Science.
"Congressman Bishop is a great historian and an excellent speaker," says Neka Roundy, mayor of Kaysville. "The Civic Committee encourages families to attend this special event."
As was noted in last week's paper, many other events are planned as part of the Kaysville/Fruit Heights celebration.
Other events include "The Sound of Music" with multiple performances at Davis High, Kaysville Rotary 5K and 10K Run/Walk, breakfast at DATC at 6:30 a.m. on July 4, a carnival at the DATC July 1, 3 and 4, with everything capped off by fireworks July 4 at 10 p.m. at the DATC.
