Code Talker Birthday

We have the great privilege this Saturday the 31st to pay tribute to Samuel Tom Holiday at his 90th birthday celebration. He is one of the original Navajo Code Talkers. The Code Talkers were probably extremely instrumental in saving hundreds if not thousands of Marine lives. The party will be held at the VFW and Lions Club building on 100 South, just across the street of the north side of the Sun Bowl. Let's have a good turnout to show how much Marines care about other Marines who have done so much to keep our brothers’ lives safe.

Uniform will be ceremonial of course. The party starts at 1000. Sam will show about 0930, so let’s muster 0900 to make sure he gets the welcome he deserves.

May 2014 Commandant's Corner

The month of May is significant with the Utah Dixie Detachment. This is the month where changes in leadership positions will take place.  Voting will be held at the 10 May Meeting.  A number of Detachment members are involved to ensure that the Detachment continues to flow harmoniously. Some have additional assignments not shown but vital to the continued growth of the Detachment.

As you all know by now, we have scheduled our annual Dixie Detachment Golf Tournament, Saturday 14 June 2014, to be held at the Sky Mountain Golf Course (1030 North 2600 West, Hurricane, Ut 84737).  We desire that all members who are capable participate in the golf tournament with their friends.  We recognize that we have some members who do not golf but would like to help out in some manner.  If you are not playing, then start selling and/or accept a support role.  It would be extremely helpful if the majority of our Detachment was involved in doing whatever it takes to make this benefit the biggest "money maker" ever for the Detachment. Our goal: Play, Support, Sell and/or tell your friends. Remember: "It's not what you know or where you've been that counts, it's what you DO!

Devil Pup Fund Raising

Chaplain Handy has negotiated an arrangement with Ricardo’s Mexican Restaurant at 1110 S. Bluff in St. George for this Wednesday, 21 May.  As part of their grand  re-opening, starting at 0900, Steve will hand you a special breakfast card and Ricardo’s will donate 10% of your bill to Devil Pups! How about that!!!! Enjoy a good hearty breakfast and trigger a 10% donation – as  simple as that.  This applies to each customer, not just Marines.

Patriot Guard Riders are joining us on 24 May for a day of fund raising for the Devil Pup program along with our car show.  Please see their flyer:
