In the five years Niel and Candice Ekberg have lived in Morgan, they have made a big impact in the community. Niel is a state trooper with the Utah Highway Patrol. Candice is a local EMT and a track and field coach at MHS. For each of them, getting to this point was a journey of self-discovery and pursuing meaningful paths. As their story unfolds, it is notable to observe their biography continues to evolve as the result of hard work—a testament that dreams may be accomplished through passion and perseverance.

Recently, two experiences have caused me to reflect on the Vietnam War.  In May, my husband and I visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C.  Monday, May 28, chairs in the area in front of the wall sat empty awaiting the arrival of dignitaries for the Memorial Day service where President Obama gave his address. In addition to honoring Vietnam veterans in his speech, he set aside May 28 - Nov. 11 of this year to honor those who gave their lives to fight in this war, one of the most controversial wars of the 20th century.

On June 18, at our Sons of the Utah Pioneers monthly dinner meeting, the guest speakers were Alan and Linda Turner.  They reported on their mission to Zimbabwe, Africa, from September 2007 to March 2009.  The challenges were many they reported, but the rewards and enjoyment they felt from serving was evident during their presentation.

Jim Nickerson was a young man in the air force when he met Nell while attending a wedding reception in Morgan.  He was stationed at Hill AFB, which was a long way from his home in Massachusetts.  As stories go, they soon had their own wedding at Nell’s parent’s home in Morgan and lived in their first apartment in Ogden.

Do you have plans for Memorial Day weekend? If you don’t, then you’re in luck. And if you do, you may want to reconsider spending some time at one of northern Utah’s most spectacular community events.

The summer of 1952 Mary Ellen was dating a local boy who was excited to have his older cousin come visit.   The two 20 year olds came up with plans for Harold who was 24 and on leave from the United States Air force.  They wanted to go on a couple of double dates, but the only available girl was only 16 so they decided to have Mary Ellen go out with Harold and the other two would go out together.  The foursome went to a dance at Lagoon, and two weeks to the day later Mary Ellen and Harold were married! The rest was history…
