ST. GEORGE — The St. George Exchange Club honored local individuals and a business last month through a program they promote called, “Proudly We Hail,” chaired by club member Mark Loosli. The program recognizes individuals and businesses in the community that fly the American flag 24/7.
Those honored were Mae and JC Broadhead and Southwest Behavioral Health Center. They were presented plaques at the St. George Exchange Club’s regular weekly breakfast meeting held at George’s Corner Restaurant.
JC Broadhead said even though he served 20 years in the U.S. Navy, it is his wife who really served the military by helping raise their children. He has always wanted to show his love for the United States by flying the flag 24/7.
Robert Powell of Southwest Behavioral Health Center said since his agency serves the community, it was important to fly the flag 24/7. Powell said Southwest Behavioral Health Center, 474 W. 200 North in St. George, has flown their flag since the building opened in 2003.
