Pageant Duty

Tomorrow, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS, Mormon) will present the 2012 Hill Cumorah Pageant.  Today I volunteered to help with security on the hill.  They stationed me at the base of the hill to help control traffic to the top of the hill.  It was a nice place because I had a lovely shade tree.

I love the people I meet while volunteering at pageant.  I met a family that knows my brother.  I met a family from Benicia, California.  I met local people whom I hadn’t met until today.  It’s fun and so cool that this all happens here… in Palmyra.

Comes tomorrow, the village will be full of tourists (more than the last few days), as people prepare to watch the Hill Cumorah Pageant.

By the way, people are already starting to ask about staying at the Beckwith Mansion in 2013.  May this serve as a suggestion to contact us EARLY if you would like to stay at the Beckwith Mansion and Estate during Pageant 2013.
