By Susan Bartholomew - DUP Museum Director

The Springville Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum will host a family night event at the museum on Monday, July 25, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The community is invited to attend. The museum is located at 175 S. Main in Springville.

If only the DUP museum had magical powers like in the movie “Night at the Museum” and the pioneers in our museum would come to life at night. Wouldn’t that be something? On July 25, Susan Mitchell will be at the museum to bring Priscilly to life and share some great stories with us. Susan is a ventriloquist and is a delightful storyteller. She’ll be performing at 6, 6:30 and 7 p.m.

There will be a demonstration on the museum’s weaving looms in the basement activity room by Sandy Allison. She brings this old art back to life. It is fun to see something that the pioneers used to do. This will be a hands-on demonstration for those that attend.

There will also be pioneer games and activities and other sharing of the lives of our Springville pioneers. Come enjoy bringing our pioneers back to life, even if it is just in our memories. Come celebrate Springville and Mapleton’s pioneer heritage.
