Even though the new Mormon Handcart Visitors Center near Martin's Cove in central Wyoming will be dedicated on Saturday, May 3 (see Church News, April 5), it will not be opened to visitors until the following Saturday, May 10, reported John Creer, president of Farm Management Co.

Farm Management Co. manages the property where the center is located about 50 miles southwest of Casper, Wyo., on Highway 220.Visiting hours at the center, to be staffed by six Church-service missionary couples, will be from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. However, if visitors want to take a handcart, which may be picked up at the center, to Martin's Cove, some 2 1/2 miles away, they must do so by 3 p.m., and have the cart returned by 7 p.m., said Brother Creer.
