Here in Utah we take our pioneer heritage seriously. In fact our beautiful state sets aside one day of the year to honor the pioneers who crossed the country looking for a new life. So today, July 24th, we salute the brave men and women who came to this territory and worked so hard and sacrificed so much. There will be parades, picnics, and fireworks. Plenty of family, food and fun. Hopefully we'll all take a moment and remember those who came before, laying the foundation for our great country, no matter where we live.
Happy Pioneer Day!
