The Manti Camp of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers (DUP) newly-elected officers met at the John Patten Museum recently, along with curators Darlene Blackham and Ruby Stull to clean the building and discuss how to conduct public tours with COVID restrictions.

New officers of the Manti Camp DUP are: Camille Larsen, captain; Kathy Cox, first vice captain; Jeanette Perdue, second vice captain; Cathi Call, secretary/treasurer; Shanna Colburn, registrar; Ruby Stull, historian/curator and Darlene Blackham, publicity/curator; Norma Lingwall, parliamentarian; Joyce Alder, chaplain; Marilyn Miller, lesson leader; and Jane Braithwaite, pianist.

The Patten Museum has many pioneer artifacts that have been donated over the years. The Museum was built in 1854, along with the Manti School log cabin that was in Manti’s log fort during the same time period. “We are fortunate to have this treasure in our midst,” says captain Camille Larsen.

The museum is located at 97 W. 300 North. Any woman who wants to join the DUP should contact Larsen at 835-6432.
