From roadshows to church basketball, service projects to the Gold and Green Ball, the Young Men and Young Women Mutual Improvement Association played an integral role in shaping the youth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
For the past six months, Jessie Embry, associate director of the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies at Brigham Young University, has collected information about Church sports. She is now expanding her study to include other recreational activities.
Those willing to share experiences with the recreational aspects of MIA should contact Embry at (801) 422-7585 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
