Title Skating Party on the Levee
Description all cattail patches. As they glided across the ice, hoarfrost billowed up all around them and glistened in the moonlight, giving the appearance of a million fire-flies. This wonderful moment would be forever riveted in his mind, a quiet and beautiful November night and skating slowly along with one of the loveliest and certainly the prettiest girl in all the world. Life in Manti was good. In fact it was great! From afar came the cry that the chili was ready. The couple skated toward the warming fire which was still burning brightly and was welcome and beautiful. The hot chili with crackers was delicious and tasted as only chili can on a cold winter evening. Hot chocolate was also plentiful and helped to warm tingling fingers and toes. With tummies filled, the marshmallows came out and many guys meticulously roasted one to a golden brown for that special young lady standing nearby. Then, with the fire now just glowing embers, it was time to load up and head for town. Everyone was a little tired and cold, but it had been a great time for all. Soon a string of headlights could be seen slowly moving up the river lane. The hayracks, loaded with happy kids, were the last to leave the levee. As they slowly moved up the lane, the first group could be faintly heard singing, "By the Light of the Silvery Moon." "MHS Forever" was clearly ringing out in the clear, dark night from the group on the last hayrack. Holding the hand of that special girl, the nameless young guy was thinking, no place on earth is better than growing up in Manti. Documentation: Special memories of the author. 24
