Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By LaRon Taylor

The Mt. Nebo Chapter of the Sons of Utah Pioneers recently took a trek to Cove Fort & Filmore. The weather was pleasantly warm with some wind that is ever-present in that area. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a complete tour of the historic fort. We were fascinated with the thick walls and the tiny rifle portals. Some of us were able to see for the first time what an oxshoe looked like.

After touring the fort, we headed for the first State Capitol in Filmore. It was only partially built (25%) because government funding got locked up. In addition to lots of early artifacts, they also had a ton of ancestral pictures. Some of us even found pictures of our own ancestors while there.

The trek was informative and very enjoyable. The association with one another was also uplifting in this casual setting.

The Mt. Nebo Chapter has a monthly meeting on the fourth Thursday of every month at 6:30 PM. The members and their spouses enjoy a great catered meal and a guest speaker. Anyone wishing to join (or learn more about) the SUP can call Dan Howlett at 801-224-5885.
