Pamphlets and leaflets from around Palmyra

Note: This should be my last Palmyra relate post for a while.

As mentioned before, my family went to see the Hill Cumorah Pageant in Palmyra, New York back in the middle of July. I have previously posted about the protestors as well as some pictures of the sites we visited. I’ve also scanned five of the pamphlets we picked up at the various sites, and I’ve posted them below.

Photos from Palmyra New York historical sites and pageant

As I’ve mentioned this week, back in July we went to see the Hill Cumorah Pageant. Here are some pictures. I took a lot more than this, but have selected a variety. We are hoping to go back in the Fall when things aren’t so busy and we can have the regular tours.

Voice of Lehi anonymous no more, after 26 years

One more Palmyra Pageant relate item before I post the pictures this afternoon…

This interesting item was in the Deseret News:

Until this year, Michael Bennett had never been to the Hill Cumorah Pageant in New York.

Which is odd.

He has performed in the pageant for the past 26 years.

Bennett is the voice of Lehi — four different Lehis, actually.

Hill Cumorah crew: A voluntary labor force

From MPNnow.com:

When the Latter-day Saints come to town, much work gets done — beyond Hill Cumorah.

During their stay, cast members from the pageant provide more than 1,800 hours of volunteer labor in Wayne and Ontario counties. They do everything from pull weeds and mulch gardens to clean high school lockers and paint picnic pavilions.

On an related note, last week I posted about how I wondered if the new passport laws would affect how many people from Ontario went to the Hill Cumorah Pageant. There were several members of my ward who went last week, and they said the place was only half full. However, there was the normal group of protestors yelling crazy things at the visitors.

Pageant season has started

The LDS newsroom recently posted about upcoming pageants:

Every summer in locations across the United States, thousands of volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints perform in pageants open to the public. These large outdoor productions highlight stories from the history of the Church and from the scriptures through music, theatrical dance and dramatic spoken word. All actors are volunteers, and the admission is always free.

I work in Niagara Falls, and since June 1 when the new Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) rules came into effect, business is down significantly. A lot of people don’t have passports. I’m curious as to whether this same thing will affect the Hill Cumorah Pageant in Palmyra, NY. This is only two hours away from our area, and every year dozens of members go. This year, I’ve only heard of a few.
