All were welcome. Admission was free.

4th Annual Southern Utah Veterans Convention.

This year's theme was Remembrance

Utah has thousands of military service men and women who perished in America's conflicts. We honor them.

Men and women who sacrificed to preserve our freedom were honored with their names on crosses or Stars of David placed at the Remembrance Lawn.

The Dixie JROTC assisted participants with cards and service stickers for their loved ones.

Colors were posted and a 21 gun salute was fired
by the Marine Corps League

Rabbi Helene Ainbinder of Beit Chaverim, the Jewish Community of Southern Utah, offered prayer.

Everyone enjoyed Celia Gonzales' captivating
"a cappella" performances of
The Star Spangled Banner and America the Beautiful.

St. George Mayor Jon Pike praised Veterans,
their service and sacrifice.

Inside the beautiful Dixie Center Garden Room workshops and presentations, booths, music, and food were enjoyed by participants.
