Rock Canyon Trail Daughters of Utah Pioneers Rededication

Myrleen Alger Sitterud reads her poem.

Elda Hinkins conducted the rededication of the monument. Myrleen Sitterud read the poem she wrote to show appreciation for all the hard work and help they had received to finish the monument. They appreciate George Bell who removed a dead tree; Orangeville City for installing and giving the flag and light pole; David Hinkins from Industrial Electric and his employee who came with a sand blaster to clean the rock and save the women a lot of time; Garold Burke and Bob Allen who repaired and replaced the rocks on the monument and did all the cement work; Gene and Joan Snow for repairing the plaque; Claudia Kenney for painting the roof, window and door; Trina Branson and her girls for taking care of the flowers; Merilyn Fauver for finding a DUP flag; Delile Hinkins who created a time capsule for the DUPs and a cement box to put it in, who also with the help of Kesler and Taylor Tanner hauled gravel to put around the marker; and Brock Johansen of Emery Telcom who donated enough money to finsh the project. All the labor was donated which was greatly appreicated.

The rededication prayer was given by Kent Stilson.
