The 2009 Salt Lake Christmas Tour will start in just under three weeks. This is year #25, as we started doing this thing in 1985. At that time we had just published the first issue of Heritage Quest Magazine – and there were a total of 9 of us on the tour. That included Arlene Eakle (our “professional”), Don Powell (my non-genealogist friend who came along for the trip), and Donna Potter Phillips (who has come on every tour since then as our “Mother Hen.” We had 5 paid attendees, including Donna, that year. We’ve had as many as 115. This year we will have 67 attendees on the tour.
Following are photos of the group that I ran across a couple nights ago:
