Granary Arts Creative in Residence, Rhonda Lauritzen, is compiling a local history of the Ephraim Relief Society Granary and the grain program, and she needs your help to complete it. This is an open call for local history! If you have family members who were early settlers of Ephraim, worked at the Roller Mills, or participated in the early Relief Society, please bring your stories, photographs, and documents to the CCA Christensen Cabin at Granary Arts during her office hours. The documents will be digitized and contribute to the nomination of the Relief Society Granary to the National Registry of Historic Places. Contact Rhonda with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801.695.0726.
