CEDAR CITY (Cedar City, Utah) Elder Steven Snow from St. George was the speaker at the “Fireside with a General Authority”, held at the Rock Church in September. In addition to other assignments he has served in an Area Presidency in Africa. His subject was the “Hole in the Rock” and he gave a very interesting power point presentation. Entertainment for the program was by the “Master Singers”. On Saturday, September 26th the chapter went on a trek to Page Ranch. The well informed guide for this trek was Gerald R. Shirrett, the current mayor of Cedar City and a former president of S.U.U. Page Ranch, in days gone by, was an inn and stage coach stop on the “Old Spanish Trail”. To add to its history, it was occupied by ten Japanese families during W.W. II who lived there and worked the land as truck farmers. These families were from the West coast and would have otherwise been interned at Topaz or some other relocation center. A musical program was provided by a local singing group at the October chapter meeting. It was a business meeting where candidates for next year’s officers gave their campaign speeches and the elections were conducted. (Steve Correy will serve as president elect in 2010).
