Mona will have its own book of history, thanks to the efforts of the Mona camp of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.

Ina Kay, representing the DUP, said the last pages have been sent to the publisher and the book should be out in time for Memorial Day.The hard-bound, 170-page book contains the personal history of 61 of the area's early settlers. "That is not all of the early pioneers," said Kay, "but we are very proud of the number we have."

She said the group has done extensive work gathering data, as some of the early pioneers no longer have realitives in the area.

The history has photos of community buildings, church groups, old-folk parties, graduating classes, and points of interest in the community.

Kay said the project was a culmination of a dream of the Mona DUP. "We have wanted to include these many separate histories under one cover for many years," said Kay.
