Daughters of Utah Pioneers present Dla( ue Saturday Byron News Byron enjoys spectacular celebration BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON 548-2471 pamhopkinson@gmail.com Anyone who was at the park Saturday night was mesmerized by the amazing fireworks dis- play. Wow and wow some more. It just keeps getting better. I know there is some buzz about doing away with this show, but please, please, please let's figure out a way to keep it going. (I have my grandkids here, so begging is now in my vocabulary.) For two busy days the town was buzzing with activity. The kiddie carnival started out with some windy gusts that didn't even faze the kids going from booth to booth. One of the longest lines was at the face painting booth where people were still lined up at 9 o'clock, long after the others had finished. There were snakes, skulls, butterflies, dragons and princesses being requested. Glit- ter included. The dunking booth was a busy spot. One little boy got eight turns and began by saying "I never miss" and he didn't. Lots of dunk- ing going on including the new Chief of Police John Wahl, the re- tired Chief Frankie and even our Mayor Bret George got dunked. The parade Saturday morn- ing was well attended and sever- al people commented that it was the best yet. A welcome float was the Noall family float, making waves. The parade audience wel- comed getting a little wet. I found out that when my grandkids put their mind to it they can throw together a pret- ty neat float, and they did. They all wanted to dress up as west- ern characters and raided their grandpa's prop closet. The Caleb Sanders family looked great on the Byron Ward float portraying a family that prays together. Everyone loves a parade whether you're in it, on it, or watching it. I am so glad Marathon brought their float down from Cody. It was amaz- ing. I was impressed by the U- turn that driver did with that big rig. Saturday night was the alumni banquet and it was well attended. Ralph Watts did a great presentation about the fabulous 50s and Janet Dugger Haddix did a great job of deco- rating around a 50s theme. It is always good to have old (and I mean that in the nicest way) friends return home to Byron. Afterwards many were on the front lawn of the former school to catch the fireworks attraction. Thank you to the mayor and council and the recreation de- partment for your support of this great activity for the area. Thank you to the vendors who support our town celebration. Everyone is worn out, but in a good way. PATTI CARPENTER The Hopkinsons enjoyed a visit with grandchildren who raided grandpa's prop closet for costumes to wear in the Byron Day Parade held on Saturday.

On July 21 at 1:30 p.m. the Daughters of Utah Pioneers, Big Horn company-Sagebrush camp, will present the Big Horn Acade- my historical plaque dedication in Cowley. In the early 1900s many set- tiers were brought to northern Big Horn County. Various small schools were set up, but it wasn't long until the older students near- ing high school age and rapidly in- creasing in numbers were in need of a high school to serve the three areas. It was the policy of the LDS Church at this time to provide re- ligious and secular education for its youth. The decision was made to set up a school with the three towns taking turns as host. LDS Church School Commis- sioner of Education Horace Cum- mings was sent to Beaver, Utah, to interview Albert F. Fillerup to offer him the position as principal of the new high school. He agreed and in August 1909, the Fillerup family made the journey and the Woodruff Academy opened its doors Sept. 13, 1909, in Lovell. Two weeks later, the name was changed to Big Horn Academy. The school was moved to Cowley the following year and re- mained there permanently. The groundbreaking for the current building was Nov. 5, 1915, and the doors were opened for students in September of 1919. Special guest speakers at the presentation will be Katherine T. Brimhall, marker chairman from the International DUP board of di- rectors, and Iras Trover, Wyoming DUP regional representative.

("With Book and Plow," by Mark N. Partridge.) What a community we now have. Over the last 112 years, our small communities have grown and developed into fine towns that have prospered in all factors of daily life and businesses, tal- ents, education, sports, etc. The Pioneer Day book's theme this year, "Cherish Yesterday, Live Today and Dream Tomorrow," is surely an appropriate theme. This year the Pioneer Day Committee asked Edie Crosby to once again compile our annual book, which is so important to us all. Margue- rite Strom helped her, and other members worked hard to publish this wonderful book that we all look forward to. It is on sale at Cowley Merc and the Town Hall. It will also be available during the parade. The celebration begins with a trap shoot at the Lovell Shoot- ing Range Thursday evening at 6 p.m. Friday is the golf tourna- ment, the ice cream social held at the park and the adult dance/ mingle at the park with the music by the Cowley Boys. Saturday morning is the fun run and bike races at 7 a.m. The kiddie parade starts at 9 a.m., the main parade starts at 10 a.m. and the Pioneer Heritage Program will be held at 11 a.m. at the LDS church. There will also be a free bike drawing for kids 8-12-years- old and the drawing will be held during the main parade. Children can put their names in the entry box at the Cowley Mercantile. There will be a classic car show north of the city park on Saturday afternoon and a barbe- cue lunch in the park starting at noon, which is sponsored by the Senior League baseball. Also at noon, there will be kids games and volleyball. Later, at 1:30 p.m., the Daughters of Utah Pi- oneers will present a Big Horn Academy historical plaque. The rodeo will begin at 2 p.m., then horseshoe pitching at the park at 6 p.m. At 7 p.m. Syl- via Gams and Lynne Strom will host a talent show where peo- ple from near and far will per- form their special talents in the newly air conditioned log gym. An Ultimate Teen Night, sponsored by the Cowley Rec- reation District and the Health Coalition, will begin at 9 p.m. and will last until midnight at the senior baseball field. What a celebration. This Pioneer Day celebra- tion will be filled with family and friends, food, activities, mu- sic, talent and reunions. An im- portant reunion is the Class of 1962. Also, the Miller family will celebrate the 100-year anniver- sary marking the date that the Gottfried Miller family sailed from Russia to America due to the unrest preceding World War I. There is a great history of this family in the Cowley book written by Hermina Miller Gams. The family gets together to honor and remember the cour- age it took the Gottfried Miller family to immigrate to America, and their name will be inscribed in the American Immigrant Wall of Honor, along with many other immigrants, to be built near El- lis Island. The Miller family is honored also for their strength as a family and the many contri- butions they have made through all their descendants to our com- munity in the past 100 years. Welcome to all former res- idents of Cowley who come to celebrate the founding of their families in the early 1900s. Ev- eryone have a fine celebration. Watch for our E-edition announcement/
