Pioneer Day in Tahiti
Children of the Papeete Tahiti Stake love pioneers! They gathered with their parents for a stake Pioneer Day activity honoring the pioneers who journeyed to the Salt Lake Valley in 1847.
Each ward built a pioneer wagon—some made with bicycle wheels and one with cardboard horses. The children marched in a parade, played pioneer games, and enjoyed delicious food.
Pioneer Day is also a special day to remember people in every country who accept the gospel and help teach it to others. All of these people are pioneers too!
