History comes alive when someone is able to not only read about the past, but also able to visit the places, see the artifacts, appreciate the images, read the actual words. For most people, history starts with learning about their family or their community. Imagine trying to discover your genealogy without anything tangible to search. Preservation of our heritage is a vital link to cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, and economic legacies — all of the things that quite literally make us who we are. History plays a vital role in our everyday lives. We learn from our past in order to achieve greater influence over our future. History serves as a model of who to be and who not to be — of what to champion and what to avoid. Every day, decision-making around the world is based on what came before us.
Because history matters. ~~~ Steve Berry

This is in Alice Hafen's Photo Collection. It is a picture sent to her grandparents, Henry Ericksen and Wilhemina Morrison Ericksen in 1925. Perhaps someone will appreciate this photo from the Proctor Family.

Opened with singing and prayer by Sister Peel.
Minutes of a former meeting were read and approved. Sister Morrison expressed herself with pleasure at having the opportunity afforded us of assembling together to bear our testimony and to talk of the principles of the gospel received in these the last days. Also, talked a little on the "United Order" and said that the Lord will have a tried people. If we would remember our prayers in private and public, he would give us his spirit to enlighten our minds and give us wisdom, knowledge and understanding if we were faithful to the whisperings of the good spirit.
Sister Peel also spoke in her own language. Many of the sisters bore a faithful testimony.
Sister Peterson read a singular dream she had which certainly was very instructive.
It was proposed, seconded and carried that sisters Synegore, Johnson, Mina Madsen, Charlotte Yenson were admitted teachers of the Visiting Committee.
Meeting closed and prayer by Sister Peterson

(Comment by Lee R. Christensen): The North Sanpete football team of 1929 was the first football team I saw in action. Neil Hafen, on a "sleeper" play ,my first play. I don't know who was expected to throw him the ball, Granny Peterson ,the quarterback, or Vernon Christensen, halfback, but I doubt either of them could have thrown the ball across the field to Neil. The ball in those days was much fatter than today's ball. The field was dirt, the tumble weed stickers many , and the times simpler. I was a 2nd grader, on my own, wandering over from Hamilton to see the game. And like everyone else roaming up and down the sidelines following the team. Go Rams!!!

They have been long-time supporters of the Pioneer Association, recently contributing both items of historic value and also monetarily. We appreciate our association with them and extend our sympathies to Reva and her family. Read Deseret News Obituary
