On Oct. 6, the Standard-Examiner published an article about the Ogden Chorale ("Ogden Chorale to give scrapbook to city"). I felt truly honored, because the second (and final) conductor of this musical organization was my father, Eugene Stephen Nye. My mother, Adona Call Nye, was also mentioned, even quoted.
Then on Oct. 18, a scrapbook, compiled by my sister-in-law, which chronicled the history of the chorale, was presented to the city council to be placed in the historical archives of the city. I had the blessed privilege to attend this presentation with my mother and my brother.
Both the article and the scrapbook are wonderful tributes to the city of Ogden, but for me, they are also wonderful tributes to my parents. My father nurtured my interest in the performing arts and my mother supported me all the way, and thus I owe them both an eternal debt of gratitude.
On another matter, on Oct. 8, the Standard-Examiner published an article about the musical play, "Nephi and the Sword of Laban" ("It came to pass...). I had the blessed privilege to participate in the cast of that production. I started out working with strangers, and now they're my friends. I thank all who came to see that wonderful show and I hope with all my heart that the spirit of the Lord touched your hearts as you viewed the show.
