Town Dinner a highlight of Clarkston’s Martin Harris Pageant

Thousands of people are expected to attend the Martin Harris Pageant that opens July 29 and plays for 12 nights in Clarkston, the town where the early Mormon leader was buried.People come from all over the country each year and Clarkston, with its 700-plus population, has no restaurant, no gas station, no convenience store. What it does have, though, is a Town Dinner served each evening prior to the pageant and Dorothy Page, who chairs the event along with her husband Lynn, says everyone is invited to attend.”We figure that there’ll be an average of 400 a night,” Page says. “The last time the pageant was held they served just under 5,000. They had it 11 nights then. “It’s extended one night this year. There’s 12 nights so we’re anticipating we’ll serve 400-500 a night.”Page says more than 100 Clarkston residents help with the popular roast beef dinner in one way or another. She says it costs just $6.50 but reservations are necessary 24 hours ahead of time. For more information, call 563-9090.
