Thank You for Your Support of Southern Utah Devil Pups

An awesome array of incredibly talented Southern Utah Devil Pups, a generous Pizza Factory meal of salad, bread sticks, pizza and drinks, and a totally packed house made 2019 SoUtah Devil Pups Awards Night a huge success!  Lead Liaison Representative Sgt. Billion Johnston, MCL member and trainer for these accomplished pups, led the evening full of fun, certificate presentations for donors, supporters, Eagles and staff as well as an unusually full list of Devil Pup camp award winners.

These new Devil Pup graduates appreciate the financial and encouraging support of the SoUtah Practical Shooters, Utah Dixie Detachment #1270 of the Marine Corps League, the Color Country Chapter of D.A.R. and the many individual supporters of our program.  

Guests included Utah Dixie MCL supporters
