This city's Pioneer Historical Association will hold its 133rd annual homecoming and pioneer celebration on March 28.

The celebration brings hundreds of former residents back to Mt. Pleasant for homecoming. A program and lunch at the Mt. Pleasant LDS Stake Center, tours of historic sites and other activities are on the day's agenda.The celebration began in 1910, with the organization of a committee to initiate the construction of a pioneer monument that would mark Mt. Pleasant's 50th anniversary.

Money was raised, a design chosen and the Monument Bronze Co. of Bridgeport, Conn., commissioned to build the pioneer monument. Today, it stands in front of the Mt. Pleasant Public Library - a focal point in the March 23 observance.
