Description stood and received our applause Of course, refreshments were a highlight of the day as we enjoyed the good food prepared by willing hands and donations ranged from sandwiches, cookies and punch, to banquets and box lunches It has been a source of great pleasure to honor the oldest man and woman who have also made a difference in our community.

The popular beard-growing contest, kangaroo court, costume balls and grand marches have given way to the changing of times, but the spirit of our celebrations still rings loud and clear in our minds. It may be just a little street where old friends meet, but the sun still shines on our pioneer monument and in the hearts of all who attend this homecoming day. A special thanks goes to Hilda Madsen Longsdorf who served as secretary of this organization for thirty-five years and was instrumental in gathering information for the history book of Mt Pleasant from its settlement until 1939. The day will never come when pioneering is at an end, and so it is good sometimes to look back and remember and appreciate those who have made possible the achievements of today Sources.
