Title The People Who Came to Settle Sanpete
Description When the eating started it could last for two hours or longer. Tables were piled high with all kinds of tasty dishes as each lady had a specialty which needed to be tasted. There was no need to stop eating, except that the thus 1 c would start up and every type of dancing known to anybody was put into action. Waltzes, schottishes, quadrilles, foxtrots, two-steps, Virginia Reels, and several dances brought over from the old country would keep the people whirling on the floor. The dancing would continue as long as step. When exhaustion slowed them down, they could eat again or sit and visit over old times. The men would have to go home to do the chores, but they would be back again. The evening was started by eating [if anyone was still hungry), and then someone would think of a musical number or a story, and dancing would begin again. The young children would be wrapped in coats or blankets and laid to sleep on a bench they were tired out. When the hour of total fulfillment came, they cleared up the dishes and bundled up the kids to go home. This annual event was carried on for many years. The 4th of July was a day that brought out Streets and stores were lined with bunting and f1ags. Always there was a parade. The best program of songs and stories. Some great best feelings of the people. Everyone enj oyed which the Mayfield team usually excelled. Later the young people were sure to go to a Six, or some other good orchestra.
