The St. Johns Stake has been in existence for 30 years
and in all of that time there has never been a stake cele
bration. We want to have one now, and we want it to be a
good one. During all of these 30 years with its trials and
troubles we have had but one president a wonderful thing
for a frontier stake and for pioneer times. We want to
show him and the other three officers who have served the
30 years and all of the original stake officers that we ap
preciate them. Many of those who once were our neigh"
bors have moved away now, and we have invited them to
come back and celebrate with us. We want the people of
Apache county to come. St. Johns is making ready to en
tertain its friends wherever they come from but come and
see us. Come and let us honor the event together.
