On July 24 I rode on a float in the Ivins City Pioneer Day Parade. This was rather important to me in that I designed the float upon request of the local Anasazzi camp. There were six daughters of the Utah Pioneers with me on the float. Each person enacted a pioneer chore using artifacts and implements of the pioneer era. In addition, we all sang the theme song of the DUP and played rhythm instruments. I accompanied on the accordion. People clapped and cheered for us as we drove by because they could hear it clearly as it was amplified. It was a lot of fun.
