55 years ago today - 55 years ago - Nov 28, 1964

The Church News headlines, "Inauguration Steps In Home Evening Plan For December," which describes detailed instructions to stake presidents and subsequently to ward bishops for implementing the weekly family home evening program for all Mormons. LDS leaders stress this repeatedly from the pulpit and church headquarters eventually enforces it with Monday evening closing of such LDS enterprises in Salt Lake City as the Deseret Gymnasium and the genealogical library and of temples worldwide. This finally succeeds in achieving widespread compliance of Mormon families in holding home evenings which had not occurred after official announcements in 1915, 1946, and 1961.
