As a fun part of my as­sign­ment as a Root­sTech Am­bas­sador, I was priv­i­leged to be able to give away a three-day pass to this mar­velous event. The per­son who won the pass is Vic­tor Cave. He was born and raised in Tahiti, went to school in Hawaii and even­tu­ally moved to Aus­tralia. He went back to Tahiti to serve as a mis­sion pres­i­dent there for three years. He now re­sides in Springville with his lovely wife and is the ed­u­ca­tion di­rec­tor for the Springville Fam­ily History Cen­ter lo­cated on 400 South and 200 East.
