The Primary used to put on elaborate annual “festivals” on a stake basis — lots of singing and dancing, costumes, and speaking parts. I haven’t figured out how frogs, toadstools, Roman guards, and the Greek characters of Apollo, Persephone, and Ceres all fit together in 1937′s “blossom festival,” but apparently they did — because in several issues of the Children’s Friend early that year, photographs of children from the Grant Stake furnished models for other stakes to design their costumes.
I find the photograph of “Roman Guard” to be the most interesting. Or, rather, the name under the photograph:
That’s 11-year-old Neal A. Maxwell, then of the East Mill Creek Ward Primary, and later of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles.
