Celebration


It was a huge success




More than 3,000 visitors came to our little town of five hundred. The sun was shining, emerald green everywhere. Smiles on every face. Handsome, real cowboys, in hats bigger than the West, were taking visitors on wagon rides pulled by 19 hands tall mules.



Firehouse sirens announced that breakfast was ready at the Bowery. The Honorable Governor of the State Utah shook my hand and actually had a conversation with me. (I shamefully admit that I posed for the cameras).



For lunch San Pete County special Turkey, with all the fixings, was served.



I set up my shop in the "Old School"; met wonderful people who were so complimentary and interested in my ceramics. They actually brought out their wallets. I said good bye to many of my favorite pieces.


At 2:00 p.m. sharp a lively auction took place. Our artists, and we have many, donated their 4-square paintings. This is the most successful event of the Memorial Day Celebration. We donate the proceeds to the restoration fund of the "Old School".
