Springville/Maple­ton Com­pany DUP in­stalls of­fi­cers

Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Judy El­sner

The Springville/Maple­ton Com­pany of the Daugh­ters of the Utah Pi­o­neers has new of­fi­cers for the 2015-2016 terms. Th­ese board mem­bers were in­stalled at the yearly Ju­bilee held in Septem­ber. Kather­ine Brimhall, In­ter­na­tional So­ci­ety DUP record­ing sec­re­tary and mark­ers chair­man, was present at the out­door meet­ing to in­stall the of­fi­cers. The of­fi­cers are: Joy Pinck­ney, pres­i­dent; Jo Dor­rough, 1st vice pres­i­dent; Linda Olsen, 2nd vice pres­i­dent; Carol Cur­tis, sec­re­tary; Sue Wis­combe, trea­surer; Elma Evans, par­lia­men­tar­ian; Trinka Ev­jen, chap­lain; Susan Bartholomew, regis­trar; Katie Dav­i­son, his­to­rian; Mau­reen Clark, cho­ris­ter; and Judy El­sner, pub­lic re­la­tions and scrap­book.

At the Ju­bilee, Pres­i­dent Joy Pinck­ney told a story of her ob­tain­ing a his­tor­i­cal photo of her great grand­fa­ther, Ephraim Hank’s last wife. The framed photo of Thisbe Read Hanks had been un­der the house of a rel­a­tive and it was of­fered to Joy’s mother, who at the time wasn’t really in­ter­ested in it. Joy grate­fully ac­cepted it and trea­sur­ers it. It was on dis­play for all to see.

At the Ju­bilee, the group was hon­ored with the pres­ence of Lee Nel­son, a well­known speaker and au­thor of his­tor­i­cal nov­els. Those present thor­oughly en­joyed his pre­sen­ta­tion.

The Springville Pioneer Mu­seum spon­sored by the DUP will be closed for the win­ter; it will open again in March. It is lo­cated at 175 S. Main (phone 801-4912076). Call Susan Bartholomew at 801489-7811 to sched­ule an ap­point­ment or tour dur­ing this time of win­ter clo­sure. Check us out on­line. The mu­seum has some books on the early history of Springville on sale at a dis­count now.

Dur­ing the win­ter months, it is a good time to sit by the fire and, as “Keep­ers of the Past,” write the history of an heir­loom that has been passed on to you or the history of your fam­ily.

Shown are the Springville/Maple­ton Com­pany DUP Of­fi­cers for 2015-2016.
