Whew! we made it through another great 24th.

For those who don't know the 24th of July is a State Holiday in Utah.  It is the day we celebrate the arrival of the pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley.  For Panguitch this has traditionally been our big holiday when we have class and/or family reunions.  This year was an all school reunion, we have these every ten years and it takes tons of planning and this year it was spectacular.  I thought you might like to see a float of our very own rhythm band.  Do You recognize any one here?  Yes, that is Claudia in the fabulous hat.

In Panuitch in the summer the place to eat is  Henrie's.  It is our very own hamburger shop.  The specialty is the chubby cheese.  They have other yummy food and shakes.  For as long as I can remember the same family has owned and operated this business. I even remember when it was a dairy queen in the fifties and maybe into the sixties.   This is their float showing 4 generations of their family.  There are actually four generations that still work.  When out of town grand children or great grandchildren come to town they may end up taking a shift or two.  This is the place in town for the teenagers to hang out but the whole town enjoys the food.  Because of heating issues it is not  open during the winter so every spring when they open up it is swamped.  Towards fall they are busy because they will be closing soon and we need one or two or three  last meals before they close.  Except for the cafes in town it is the only place to buy a hamburger.

Panguitch is a great place to be in the summer time.  Enjoy


  1. Hi Claudia! Wave wave.
    I think Panquitch would be a perfect place to have a parade on the 24th. You get out of the heat!
