Mormon Pioneer Day

1847 Plus 163 Years

“The foremost quality of our pioneers was faith. With faith in God, they did what every pioneer does—they stepped forward into the unknown: a new religion, a new land, a new way of doing things. With faith in their leaders and in one another, they stood fast against formidable opposition. When their leader said, 'This is the right place,' they trusted, and they stayed. When other leaders said, 'Do it this way,' they followed in faith.”

- Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, “Following the Pioneers,” Ensign, Nov. 1997, p. 72
(b. 12 Aug 1932)

PRAYER REQUEST:

     From Me ('65) of IL - 07/24/10, 6:00 PM - "    Kaiya":

   We just heard from our daughter-in-law,   Kim (Woods Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / Richard Milburn Academy, FL - '03 - of IL), that our almost ten-month-old granddaughter, Kaiya, is in the hospital emergency room waiting to be seen.  She has a fever of 103, but is otherwise free of symptoms, other than she won't eat or sleep.  Babies are scary people.  Your prayers on her behalf would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much!



REUNION ALERTS:

      From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 05/11/10 - "Class of 1965's 45-Year Reunion":

The NNHS Class of 1965 will hold its 45-Year Reunion on Friday and Saturday, October 15 and 16, 2010 - which is OPEN to all classes!

Friday evening we will meet at R.J.'s Restaurant and Sports Bar. The only cost will be what you choose to eat and drink. The company will be priceless. 

Saturday will be spent at Newport News Park. We've reserved a group shelter that can seat 150 people with sufficient cover to take care of any weather concerns. If you made it to the 55th Birthday Party you'll recall it was held at the Park in one of the smaller shelters. The facility we're using this time is a new addition and will give us lots of flexibility to meet and reminisce. The cost of this event is $15.00 per person through August 31, 2010. After that date the cost will be $20.00 per person. The charge for Saturday will cover your food and beverages.

     From Me ('65) of IL - 07/13/10 - "My Anniversary Gift to You (continued from Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday)":

   I decided to actually work on the site itself and do some long overdue scanning.  As a result, these pages are either entirely new or newly fleshed-out with images:

   Why, you may well wonder, did I concentrate solely on the Class of 1967??  That's because         David Whitley ('67) of VA graciously loaned me his 1967 Anchor back in the Fall of 2006 and it's high time to return it to him!

   Thanks again, Gorgeous!

NOTE: I had planned to finish several more sections, but this is taking even longer (and making me even nutzier!) than I had anticipated, so I'll be working on this for the next few days.


  From Chuck Jones ('66) of Northern VA - 07/22/10 - "SPD":

Hey Carol,

I just took a look at the announcement for the Tailgate Party and I followed the link to the SPD page.  I noticed that one brother was not on the site, George Herndon class of '67. 
 
Thanks,
Chuck

      Thanks, Chuck! I've fixed that now:

   This is just amazing, David! I must say I love the scared little baby voice of the poor little baby bear!

   Thanks again, Gorgeous!


    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 07/24/10 - "Payne Genealogy":

Hi Carol
 
I am going to start calling you Cousin Carol.  I am amazed that your grandmother was Hattie Payne. My mom was Hattie Elizabeth Payne. I still am trying to locate my Payne reunion book. You know I lost my uncle Richard Payne who lived in Reidsville, N.C. last year, so all of my close Payne kin have all gone.
 
Glenn Dye
 
     Well, Cousin Glenn, I knew you had a Payne line, but I didn't realize that Payne was your mama's maiden name!  The relationship is much closer than I had supposed.

   As you can see from these pedigree charts, my own mama - whose middle name was also Elizabeth! - was a seventh generation North Carolinian on her mother's side.

   Thanks, Cousin Glenn!

FINALLY:
From ArcaMax Jokes - 07/23/10:

Aerospace Industry

My job is in the Aerospace Industry, and it's always been a challenge to explain just what kind of work I do.

At one gathering, I tried several unsuccessful attempted explanations before deciding to be as generic as possible. When the subject came up while I was talking with a group of guys, I replied simply, "Defense Contractor."

The men nodded, and as the conversation went on, I silently declared victory to myself. Then, one of them turned to me and asked, "So, what do you put up mainly? Chain-link?"

Come, Come, Ye Saints

"This hymn text was written by William Clayton, who was inspired by the existing hymn 'All Is Well' and his experiences traveling to Utah as one of the Mormon Pioneers. They, the early members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, gathered from around the world and walked across the American plains to find a new home in the West where they could live their religion without persecution. They settled and colonized much of what is now the state of Utah and although the bitter persecution of the past has, for the most part, been replaced with understanding and respect, for members of the Church throughout the world the hymn 'Come, Come Ye Saints' continues to represent their heritage of faith and sacrifice."

Words by William Clayton, April 15, 1846
(1814 - 4 Dec 1879)

Music: English Folk Song
 

Come, come, ye Saints, no toil or labor fear;
But with joy wend your way.
Though hard to you this journey may appear,
Grace shall be as your day.
'Tis better far for us to strive
Our useless cares from us to drive;
Do this and joy your hearts will swell —
All is well! All is well!


Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
'Tis not so; all is right.
Why should we think to earn a great reward
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take.
Our God will never us forsake;
And soon we'll have this tale to tell —
All is well! All is well!

We'll find the place which God for us prepared,
Far away in the West.
Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid;
There the Saints will be blessed.
We'll make the air with music ring,
Shout praises to our God and King;
Above the rest these words we'll tell —
All is well! All is well!

And should we die before our journey's through,
Happy day! All is well!
We then are free from toil and sorrow, too;
With the just we shall dwell!
But if our lives are spared again
To see the Saints their rest obtain;
Oh, how we'll make this chorus swell —
All is well! All is well!
