We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

The Springville/Mapleton Company of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers has new officers for the 2015-2016 terms. These board members were installed at the yearly Jubilee held in September. Katherine Brimhall, International Society DUP recording secretary and markers chairman, was present at the outdoor meeting to install the officers. The officers are: Joy Pinckney, president; Jo Dorrough, 1st vice president; Linda Olsen, 2nd vice president; Carol Curtis, secretary; Sue Wiscombe, treasurer; Elma Evans, parliamentarian; Trinka Evjen, chaplain; Susan Bartholomew, registrar; Katie Davison, historian; Maureen Clark, chorister; and Judy Elsner, public relations and scrapbook.


At the Jubilee, President Joy Pinckney told a story of her obtaining a historical photo of her great grandfather, Ephraim Hank’s last wife. The framed photo of Thisbe Read Hanks had been under the house of a relative and it was offered to Joy’s mother, who at the time wasn’t really interested in it. Joy gratefully accepted it and treasurers it. It was on display for all to see.


At the Jubilee, the group was honored with the presence of Lee Nelson, a well-known speaker and author of historical novels. Those present thoroughly enjoyed his presentation.


The Springville Pioneer Museum sponsored by the DUP will be closed for the winter; it will open again in March. It is located at 175 S. Main (phone 801-491-2076). Call Susan Bartholomew at 801-489-7811 to schedule an appointment or tour during this time of winter closure. Check us out online. The museum has some books on the early history of Springville on sale at a discount now.


During the winter months, it is a good time to sit by the fire and, as “Keepers of the Past,” write the history of an heirloom that has been passed on to you or the history of your family.
