Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Judy El­sner

The Pi­o­neer Mu­seum spon­sored by the Daugh­ters of the Utah Pi­o­neers in Springville has re­cently had a “Spring Makeover.” For his Ea­gle Scout Project, Spencer Bartholomew, son of Jona­then and So­nia Bartholomew, as­sem­bled and led a crew in painting the walls of the mu­seum, help­ing the mu­seum get ready to re­open on April 1 af­ter its win­ter clo­sure.

The mu­seum is lo­cated in Springville at 175 S. Main and is now open on Wed­nes­days, Fri­days and Satur­days from 1 to 4 p.m. Mu­seum Di­rec­tor Su­san Bartholomew is grate­ful for the help she has re­ceived from the Boy Scouts and the mem­bers of the Springville/Maple­ton DUP Com­pany.

The com­pany has monthly meet­ings on the first Thurs­day of the month and has had some in­ter­est­ing speak­ers at their meet­ings.

On Feb. 4, the pro­gram at the meet­ing was ar­ranged by Camp Maple Moun­tain. Brigham Young Univer­sity Pro­fes­sor of An­cient Scrip­ture Dana M. Pike pre­sented “Sym­bols in the Jerusalem Tem­ple.” He spoke of wax seals and and other forms of seal­ing an­cient doc­u­ments.

On March 3, the pro­gram was pre­sented by Liz Cook Snow, the Cap­tain of Camp Union. She in­spired the group to be­gin writ­ing their per­sonal his­tory. Snow pro­vided those at­tend­ing with ques­tions that would re­fresh their mem­o­ries about ear­lier years in their life. She en­cour­aged the com­pany to ul­ti­mately share these mem­o­ries with fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. She chal­lenged them to just get started.

The next meet­ing will be held on April 7 at the Springville Se­nior Cit­i­zen Cen­ter at 2 p.m. Visi­tors are al­ways wel­come to at­tend DUP meet­ings. Call the mu­seum for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion at 801-491-2076.

Lo­cal Scout Spencer Bartholomew as­sem­bled a crew to paint the walls of the Springville DUP Mu­seum as part of his Ea­gle Scout Project.
