TUNS 2016 Priesthood Commemoration outing:
Date: April 29-30
Location: The Vernon Utah Livestock Church Farm 594 W Sharp Rd, Vernon, UT 84080 (Google Map link)

4:00pm - 8:00pm set up of individual camps and dinner
8:00pm - A fun, brief Priesthood Commemoration Program for all ages
8:30pm - An evening dessert (provided by the stake)
10:30pm - lights out

6:00am - breakfast served (stake provided) and break camp
7:30am - depart for the James ranch and stake service assignment via the pony express pass

Contingency plans: The possibility of inclement weather sufficient to place the outing and/or service assignment in question is very real. This give rise to 3 possible scenarios:

1. The weather holds - the event and assignment go as planned
2. Rain or sufficient inclement weather on Friday - The entire weekend is canceled and we and hold a commemoration breakfast on the patio and multi purpose room at the stake center on Saturday morning at 8:00am to use up the supplies.
3. Rain or sufficient inclement weather on Friday night while we are camped - Saturday service project will likely be cancelled due to mud and impassible roads at the ranch. We will serve breakfast, break camp and depart for home from Vernon
