2007-06-18 Mission Pioneer Picnic
Each June we celebrate the time when the Mormon Pioneers made their trek west.
This is how we celebrated it in the mission field near Salt Lake City, UT in the summer of 2007.
We all tried to dress in casual pioneer clothes and had a picnic in the famous This Is The Place Heritage Park.

Healey was in charge of buildings besides his regular shift in the
Library. He could barely hear from one ear and was almost
completely deaf in the other. You had to stand close, speak
slowly, and shout into his hearing aids. Still, he served a very
fruitful mission and seemed to work harder than most of us.The GivensThe ClantonsSister VincentThe train is empty but the memories are full.
