Springville DUP plans pi­o­neer ac­tiv­ity for fam­i­lies

Su­san Bartholomew DUP Mu­seum Di­rec­tor


The Springville Daugh­ters of Utah Pi­o­neers Mu­seum will host a fam­ily night event at the mu­seum on Mon­day, July 25, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The com­mu­nity is in­vited to at­tend. The mu­seum is lo­cated at 175 S. Main in Springville.

If only the DUP mu­seum had mag­i­cal pow­ers like in the movie “Night at the Mu­seum” and the pi­o­neers in our mu­seum would come to life at night. Wouldn’t that be some­thing? On July 25, Su­san Mitchell will be at the mu­seum to bring Priscilly to life and share some great sto­ries with us. Su­san is a ven­tril­o­quist and is a delightful sto­ry­teller. She’ll be per­form­ing at 6, 6:30 and 7 p.m.

There will be a demon­stra­tion on the mu­seum’s weav­ing looms in the base­ment ac­tiv­ity room by Sandy Al­li­son. She brings this old art back to life. It is fun to see some­thing that the pi­o­neers used to do. This will be a hands-on demon­stra­tion for those that at­tend.

There will also be pi­o­neer games and ac­tiv­i­ties and other shar­ing of the lives of our Springville pi­o­neers. Come en­joy bring­ing our pi­o­neers back to life, even if it is just in our mem­o­ries. Come cel­e­brate Springville and Maple­ton’s pi­o­neer her­itage.

Su­san Mitchell and Priscilly
