Over the years, the national office has given opportunity for local chapter members to become Life Members. Our chapter has had a large number of its members choose to do that. It required the payment of a larger sum of money to help the national office in its quest to provide superior programs for its members. The offer is an open-ended one for all members who choose to become a life member. Today, one can become a life member in several different ways. 1. He can make two payments of $250 in a year’s time. 2. He can choose to pay the $50.00 a month, as long as it is paid in a one year period of time.

National Convention in Centerville, Utah
Our October Newsletter 2017 begins with a review of the National Convention put on by the Centerville Chapter. It was begun with taking a tour around the building, viewing the decorations and memorabilia. A fantastic meal was then served, in proportions almost too large to completely consume. After dinner the Nationally acclaimed singing group “Fire On the Mountain” performed for us.
The rest of the convention was filled with treks, entertainment, business meetings, dinners, and a talk by Glen Rawson.
Our dinner meeting in September was graced by a presentation on the Mountain Meadow Massacre. Dawn Humphries and her husband Buck were our presenters.
The rest of the newsletter contains the calendar for the rest of the year, a continuation of the History of LaVerkin, and a special guess who section, with pictures of some of our members when they were in high school.
The September Newsletter 2017
Trek to the “The Man Who Knew Pageant, and a Wonderful Dinner with Nick Scholzen Presenting about His Families Contribution to the Settlement of Hurricane is found in the September Newsletter 2017
Our September Newsletter 2017, starts out with our activities in the month of August. About 18 to 20 of our group headed out to Clarkston, Utah to view the Clarkston Pageant. Ten of us boarded a van, while the rest went up alone. Most of us met up at the Dinner the city of Clarkston. We had a wonderful dinner of roast beef, baked potatoes, salad, and all the trimmings.
After dinner we all met up at the pageant site, and were entertained with song and dance, and thoughtful presentation of the life of Martin Harris. He was one of the three witnesses to the Book of Mormon. After the pageant, those in the van returned to Ogden, Utah. There we had rented a wonderful home to stay in. (Much more comfortable than a motel!)
The next morning we headed home. However, on the way, Gail and Nita Hinton told us of an SUP Pioneer Village set up in Provo. One of their daughters was a docent there. She was willing to come down and open up the village just for us. WOW! What an experience. The Brigham Young Chapter of the SUP has created a most marvelous place to visit. There were many original pioneer homes and businesses. It was an eyeopening and thrilling experience. From there we continued our trek home, arriving in the late afternoon. Congratulation Dan and Asenith Zaleski, for a wonderful time!
A few days later, we met at the Legion Hall for a sumptuous pot-luck dinner, and a marvelous presentation, given by Nick and Erroleen Scholzen. They told about their families contribution to the history of Hurricane and its growth. Nick is a lifetime citizen of the beautiful community of Hurricane, and like his father and grandfather before him, has contributed a great deal to the betterment of our wonderful little town!
The August Newsletter 2017
The Joys of a 24th of July Celebration. We had no dinner meeting in the month of July, but did have a presence on the “City Center Park”. At 6:00 a.m. on the 24th, a number of our group were at the park setting up the tables and camp stoves in preparation for the events of that morning. At five dollars a plate, we cooked and served up pancakes and eggs with sausage.
