It’s the final day of Pioneer Days 2019! We can’t believe how fast it’s gone, but it’s been among our best ever. Truly! Today is marked by flagpole activities (including lemon sucking, watermelon seed spitting, butter churning and so much more) and rope burn. This afternoon brings individual activities and the judging of campsite and team meal! Each team has built a campsite in the woods and will make the judges a gourmet meal over their campfire! It’s truly amazing. Tonight, it all comes down to the song, banner and tall tale (a sort of comic take on and occasional roast of all things summer 2019). It’s sure to be among our most memorable days and nights of summer! Follow along!
