The Nauvoo Pagent

A few years ago I saw a flyer advertising for bagpipers to play at the LDS Nauvoo pagent.

Being LDS and a bagpiper I was immediately interested. When I got on the website I found that they were not taking any applications at that time. I was disappointed, but vowed I'd check back later.

The next year we had a lot of expenses with kids getting married and other things, so a trip to Nauvoo was not possible. This year we didn't have the time or the money to commit, but we have discussed it and have decided that 2009 will be our year. Mindy and her family went to Nauvoo this summer for her mother's 80th birthday. They had such a good time that she has agreed we should go, and thus the ball has started to roll.

I have submitted the application and other documentation and we are just waiting to hear back on whether or not we will be accepted.

Here is an excellent story on the "Pipers of Nauvoo":

and here is the web site for the Nauvoo pagent:
