Celebrating PIONEER DAY 2016

Weaver and spinners are demonstrating this pioneer craft!
Parley P. Pratt, an early pioneer joined in the celebration aka Ross Peterson.
Geaneal and Pat sang Sons and Daughters of the Utah Pioneers
A special speaker spoke of pioneer stories that were amusing.
Cathy shows off some of the fun quilts displayed.
DeeAnn and Diane helped pull this all together
Judy stands in front of an intricate quilt displayed that was just stunning.
Quilts and artifacts were so interesting, most of us have antiques in our homes.
Click to enlarge this photo to see details inside the box and family photos.
Family histories and old photos are precious and need to be preserved.
We feasted on pies and ice cream and socialized with friends.
Lots of soon to be pioneers in the crowd.
The program ended with fun old time fiddle and guitar music.
