Title An Essay on the Neverlasting Hills
Description had ripped its way through the town since waters began to rise early last week. The evacuation order came at about ten o'clock Monday night and a steady stream of residents made their way to Mt. Pleasant by private car and in buses. Residents were told by city officials that arrange-ments had been made by County Emergency Director Wally Bushanan for the residents to be housed in the schools in Mt. Pleasant. As Fairview residents arrived they found Mt. Pleasant volunteers preparing rooms, water, and blankets for the refugees. Others took names making lists so worried relatives could find each other in the mass exodus. Most of the evacuees went to the North Sanpete High School and several to the Mt. Pleasant Ele-mentary School. Those at that schoolwere later moved to Centennial Hall and Alice Hall when Wasatch Academy opened its doors to the incoming people. Several Mt. Pleasant residents offered beds and rooms in their homes to friends or to total strangers Many Fairview residents went to homes of their children or other relatives to stay, after checking in so others would know where they were. By morning plans had been made to feed the throng breakfast at the Mt. Pleasant Elementary School, and North Sanpete School Lunch Director Sonja Robertson and other volunteers provided, juice, milk and hot chocolate, muffins, butter and jam and scrambled eggs and bacon to a weary populace who had slept little the preceding night. At about 10 o'clock Tuesday (May 31) morning word came that residents could go back to their homes in Fairview but to be prepared to evacuate again if necessary. -44-
