Dennis Cory Honors on June 24

Dennis Cory’s memorial service is set for Friday, June 24, 11:00 a.m. at the Catholic Church, 261 W 200 N in St. George.  He has been cremated and Liz would like Utah Dixie Detachment #1270 to give full honors outside the church right after the Mass.  There will be a reception in the church hall after the detail is complete.  Let’s all turn out for a former Commandant of our Detachment.  Ceremonial dress, red polo, or funeral attire – just be there to honor a former Utah Dixie Detachment Commandant. For those with ceremonial attire, please let Larry Mineer know if you can participate in the honors.
