r By Judy Elsner

The Pioneer Museum sponsored by the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers in Springville is having a “Spring Makeover.” Boy Scout Spencer Bartholomew, son of Jonathen and Sonia Bartholomew, is working on his Eagle Project and leading his crew in painting the walls of the museum. They are helping get the museum ready to re-open on April 1 after its winter closure.

The museum is located in Springville at 175 S. Main and will be open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. Museum Director Susan Bartholomew is grateful for the help she has received from the Boy Scouts and the members of the Springville/Mapleton DUP Company.rThe company has monthly meetings on the first Thursday of the month and has had some interesting speakers at their meetings.rOn Feb. 4, the program at the meeting was arranged by Camp Maple Mountain. Brigham Young University Professor of Ancient Scripture Dana M. Pike presented “Symbols in the Jerusalem Temple.” He spoke of wax seals and and other forms of sealing ancient documents.rOn March 3, the program was presented by Liz Cook Snow, the Captain of Camp Union. She inspired the group to begin writing their personal history. Snow provided those attending with questions that would refresh their memories about earlier years in their life. She encouraged the company to ultimately share these memories with future generations. She challenged them to just get started.rThe next meeting will be held on April 7 at the Springville Senior Citizen Center at 2 p.m. Visitors are always welcome to attend DUP meetings. Call the museum for further information at 801-491-2076.
