Then we got our car and drove to see the Hill Cumorah Pageant. It was much more spectacular than I anticipated and as expected was very well organized. I wish we had seen it years ago.
Here are pictures of the cast mingling with the audience prior to the show. There were over 600 in the cast and 200 in support.
After the pageant, we drove to a spare apartment in Batavia since the Merrill were not leaving until Monday. We got in after midnight, so it was a long day. Saturday, we rested and did some shopping. Toward evening time we drove about 40 miles north to a state park on Lake Ontario and did a short hike along the shore. It was not as clear and clean as Lake Superior, but nice.
Sunday we attended church in Batavia which is the branch we are assigned to attend. We got acquainted. It seemed a lot like Logansport. We were invited to lunch with the Haggerties. He is blind and a school acquaintance of our Marquette friend, Bob Dickey. He is the ward organist.
We drove to the Mission Office Monday morning for Day 1 on the job.
