Title The Story of the Saga of Sanpitch
Description In 1985 the Manti Temple was redetficated. Besides the winning entries of that year, the Saga also had a section telling the history of the Manti Temple plus many Temple pictures. Inside the cover was a picture of CCA. Christensen's famous painting that hangs in the Temple. This painting, done in the latter 1850'swas of the Indian campground in the forefront and the bare gray hill that juts down into the valley in the background. Eleanor and her co-chairmen again divided [heir responsibilities. "We feel that the Sapa is continuing to grow in popularity. We hope others will develop the love we have for this book thai it may continue to serve its purpose!" Volume 18 (1986) had for its cover a collection of varied dance programs and entertainments from Sanpete County. It included some 115 pages. Mardene Thayne was the designer. This year it was noted that "each additional volume of the Saga brings new writers and new readers.* Historical groups and libraries, as well as individuals, look forward to each new addition. Even Che elementary and middle school in South and North Sanpete are using the Saga in their Utah history classes. Eleanor P. Madsen continued as chairman, with Ruth Scow and Lillian Fox as committee members. Linnie was the treasurer with Diana Major Spencer as editor; Rae Ann R Tibbs was responsible for the typing. This was a happy book of dancing, entertainments, open air dance halls, and orchestras, all of which brought to the reader memories of the past. This was the year the Saga related to the theme of "Dancing in Sanpete County." The winning entries were published in their various categories in the usual way. A section giving some additional information and pictures on dancing in our County concludes the volume of 138 pages, thus preserving the fast disappearing stories of this Sanpete Valley. Volume 19 (1987) had the theme, "Memories of Snow College" in recognition of Snow's 100th anniversary. "Snow is very dear to the hearts of all who have received learning through its doors. It is basic to the economy of Sanpete County. Its cultural influence is felt near and far. The faculty and staff who have served there through the years, as well as those who now serve, have added great dimensions to the lives of its students." This volume contains 39 entries plus 19 Snow College pictures, including photos of the presidents of Snow. 16
