11 Jun 2015 - Ivins Nursing Home Acquarium Dedication

The Southern Utah Veterans Home (SUVH) will host a community dedication ceremony on Thursday, June 11, 2015, with ribbon cutting, in recognition and appreciation of the local Marine Corps Detachment #1270 for their generous donation of a salt water aquarium.  The dedication ceremony will be held on site at their Ivins campus at 2:00 p.m., said Jaqueline Peterson, State Officer, Utah Department of Veterans & Military Affairs.  “I personally would like to thank the Marine Corps League for their generous donation of the salt water aquarium.  The residents of the Southern Utah Veterans Home enjoy spending hours watching the fish and are so thankful to the Marine Corps League for this wonderful donation.”


The new aquarium is a beautiful addition to the two-year-old state of the art facility.  “We strive to create a welcoming, home-like setting for our residents and visitors, and now, thanks to the Marine Corps League, we are able to enhance our campus atmosphere for the pleasure and enjoyment of our resident family members,” explained Jerry Olson, Administrator, Southern Utah Veterans Home.

For Marines possessing the ceremonial uniform (white shirt/ blue trousers) please wear this uniform.  For Marines who do not possess the ceremonial uniform, the red shirt/black trousers is acceptable.  For Marines who at this time have neither uniform, your attendance is still desired.

Please join the Southern Utah Veterans Home for this community celebration and an opportunity to tour the campus.
