They enjoyed a great catered meal and listened to a presentationbron the early history of Payson. Our members had noted that L. Dee Stevenson hadbrbeen posting pictures and articles in the Payson Chronicle titled “PicturesbrTell the Payson Story” for a long time, so we contacted him to see if he wouldbrspeak to us.

The book contains a huge pictorial collection of early Paysonbrbusinesses and homes, along with associated dialogue explaining the history.brMany of the Chapter members purchased this book. His presentation covered thebrfirst three families that settled Payson, then covered information on otherbrfamilies that followed later.

brbr

Some of the early businesses were also discussed. Stevenson is abrstorehouse of knowledge about Payson, and he kept the audience spellbound forbrthe entire time. Many of the SUP Chapter Members had ties to the people hebrtalked about, and that made it even more interesting.

The Mt. Nebo Chapter of the Sons of Utah Pioneers and their wivesbrmeet monthly for these dinner meetings and guest speakers. They also have two orbrthree, one-day treks each year that usually cover something about pioneerbrhistory.
