Mormon Pioneer Day
1847 Plus 166 Years
“It is not enough to study or reenact the accomplishments of our pioneers. We need to identify the great, eternal principles they applied to achieve all they achieved for our benefit and then apply those principles to the challenges of our day. In that way we honor their pioneering efforts, and we also reaffirm our heritage and strengthen its capacity to bless our own posterity and those millions of our Heavenly Father's children who have yet to hear and accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are all pioneers in doing so.”
Dallin H. Oaks,
Ensign, Nov. 1997, p.72
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We try to celebrate this day each year, because we like to celebrate everything!

Jardine's Melting Pot of Pioneer Recipes - "Pioneer women who had to decide what few precious things to carry across the plains surely made one choice in common—their own individual collection of “receipts,” as recipes were then called. For them, these were reminders of a security left behind and a hope for the abundance of the future. In the interim, they simply did what they had to do to keep their families alive..."

absent minded writers were busy discussing a writing project
on the platform, while waiting for the train. The
announcement was made, and the train finally arrived. There
was complete panic among eagerly waiting passengers as the
train made its way to the platform. Passengers rushed inside
the train, and the train left. However, one of the writers
was not able to catch the train in the confusion.
A passerby who saw all this came up to the writer and told him not to worry and catch the next available train.
The writer replied, “I am not worried for myself, but the real problem is that I was the one who was suppose to catch the train, and the two of them who went on the train, actually came to see me off.”

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."
