Each stake center was asked to decorate a float with the theme, "How the Pioneer Legacy Continues in the Future." We met with our committee of 3 wards to come up with our idea. Each ward was going to be in charge of a time period 1800's, 1900's and the 2000's. Mike and I, representing the Wagon Trail ward, got the 2000's.
Look at that, right on the ball, I backed it up myself and didn't have one person directing me. The rest was another story.
As I drove into town with the trailer on the truck 2 hours before the parade, I had to smile as chairs were already set out for the people; and then I saw blankets all laid out at Pizza Factory. Yep, the best seats in town.
"Hastening the Work" was the title of our floats. The gospel started outside with just a speaker.
In the 1900's, the gospel was televised in our homes with General Conference.
And now in the 2000's, you can take the gospel with you anywhere on your cellular devices.
The Polynesians were entertaining. There were a whole herd of them.
