Title A Tale of Two Cemeteries
Description circle on that freezing, but delightful evening, and devour those delectable offerings. Somehow, I have always associated this little ritual with an Armory Hall dance„ After the dancing craze pretty much died down, interests and customs shifted, and the Armory was used for other things, too numerous to mention. Here are two examples: Pete Poker's candy shop was housed in the old Opera House, but when the building burned down, Pete moved his shop to a room in the northeast corner of the Armory. After that shop closed, it was used as a garage for the City Fire Engine. The Armory is still standing and is being used commercially, I am grateful that this sturdy building remains a reality. It brings back nostalgic memories and echoes of those times when "joy was unconfined," and we chased "the glowing hours with flying feet." A TALE OF TWO CEMETERIES June B- Jensen ' 575 West 300 South Orem, UT 84058 Second Place Personal Recollection A wiener roast at the Bench farm in the foothills east of Fairview was a special party of the season. If we couldn't afford to buy winers or marshmallows, no matter; we could always roast potatoes or ears of com. We noted the good crop of pinenuts on nearby pinyon trees. That would call for another trip to the hills the next weekend, That particular night was Halloween; and after we enjoyed the roasted food, the group decided to trek across town to visit the two cemeteries. It was a long dark walk, past the last houses of the Brady, Cox and Sanderson families. We stepped carefully over the bridge across the Sanpitch River or "Crick," being sure to tum the right bend in the road past a hay field. 106
