12 Oct 2019 - Thank You to Marines

Devil Pups and Families:  Please arrive in uniform by 8:30 a.m. at the Elks Lodge on No. Bluff Street for breakfast with Marines of Utah Dixie Detachment #1270.  After breakfast we will move to the meeting room at 9:00 and 2019 Devil Pups will be presented to the Detachment.  Your meals are free thanks to the Marines.

Please remember to thank the Marines as they come to shake your hands after the presentation.  They provide funds for at least two pups to attend camp each year, so it is a wonderful contribution to our program.

You and your families are free to go after the presentation when the Marines begin their monthly meeting. Please - uniforms as shown below.

Awards Night

An awesome array of incredibly talented Southern Utah Devil Pups, a delicious 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 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.  Donna Toole, CoFounder and SoUtah Devil Pups Coordinator explained the origin of the Col. Toole Cookie Award and 10 Devil Pups loudly agreed as the special award went to JROTC instructors, CMSgt. Todd Cole of Pine View High School and SMSgt. Morgan Hager of Dixie High School for their support of the SoUtah Devil Pup program.  These new Devil Pup graduates appreciate the financial and encouraging support of the Practical Shooting Range, 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.  This year's 10 graduates bring our total of Southern Utah Devil Pups to 103 over our 13 year history.  Congratulations, 2019 Devil Pups!

Awards Night Info

Pups, Parents, AFJROTC, Donors and Supporters:  Southern Utah Devil Pups Awards Night is coming up next Wednesday evening (08/21/19) at 6:30 p.m. at the Pizza Factory located at 2 W. St. George Boulevard, tucked in behind George's Corner.  We will be a "private party" in the upstairs room.

One of the things the restaurant requires of us is that we collect the $8/$5 per person within our own group so that we can just pay one bill at the end of the evening to the restaurant.  It will be so much easier if it is at all possible you can bring the right amount of cash for your family.  Justice Johnston, 2018 Pup and 2019 Eagle, will be our cashier.  She will have some $1 bills for change.  

Cost is $8 per adult and $5 for children 5 and under.  We will have unlimited pizza (all different kinds), salad, sodas and bread sticks.  You can eat all evening long since we will start the awards ceremony shortly after everyone has a plateful.  It's our aim to get everyone back home and into homework quickly since it's a school night.

The dress is CASUAL.  PUPS:  You are to dress as the 2015 pups in the photo below.  Eagles, please wear your blue shirts.  The maximum occupancy of the room is 80, and we have 70+ signed up, so be prepared to be friendly!!
