Candidate Forum Luncheon on Oct. 5th Has Great Turnout!

We had a great turnout on Tuesday, October 5th, for our Candidate Forum Lunch with Washington County Board of Realtors at the Hilton Garden Inn!

Candidates attending were St George City Council candidates Greg Aldred, Vardell Curtis, Natalie Larsen, and Michelle Tanner (via Zoom). Washington Mayoral candidate Kress Staheli and Hurricane Mayoral candidates Nanette Billings and Kevin Tervort were also in attendance.

Moderator and SUHBA member, Brian Giles of Jones Paint & Glass, posed important questions to all the candidates who then had a set time to respond. Thank you, Brian!

Not all candidates were able to attend due to prior commitments or time constraints within the luncheon.
Thank you, Zions Bank, for sponsoring the luncheon!

Membership Appreciation BBQ

We held our annual Membership Appreciation BBQ Monday evening, September 20, 2021 at the Washington Community Center. Guests enjoyed delicious hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and hot dogs hot off the grill along with other snacks and treats. Everyone had fun socializing and enjoying the beautiful evening together.

Special thanks to SunRiver for sponsoring this event!

As always, big thanks to our master grillers, Brett Brown, Craig Davis, and Ross Ford. Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to lend a hand!

September Member Luncheon

Our September Member Luncheon was a lovely picnic in the park! Members enjoyed a bag lunch and beverages they could either take with them or enjoy at Veteran’s Park in Washington. We had a great turn out and we hope everyone enjoyed it!

Special thanks to our September Luncheon Sponsor, SunHomes!
