ST. GEORGE — The St. George Exchange Club held their installation of new officers for the 2019-2020 year on Wednesday evening, June 19.
The St. George Exchange Club has actively served Southern Utah for over 40 years with members who are local business owners, community leaders and volunteer citizens. Complementing the club is the St. George Exchange Club Foundation. Each year, club members are elected to preside over the Foundation Board, which is currently led by Mark Loosli.
The St. George Exchange Club Foundation is a registered 501(c) 3 and manages all funds donated or raised by the club. Funds raised are returned to the community through various programs the St. George Exchange Club sponsors. In addition to the Southern Utah Performing Arts Festival (SUPAF), the St. George Exchange Club also sponsors and hosts the St. George Mayor’s Walk, Iron Kids Fun Run, Student of the Month Recognition, Freedom Shrine installations and dedications, the Give Me Liberty program which serves area 5th graders and Give a Kid a Flag to Wave at the annual Veterans Day Parade in Washington City.
The St. George Exchange Club, in cooperation with Dixie State University, also awards each area high school’s top graduating senior with First Year Tuition Grants. In 2015 the club contributed over $100,000 to help the city of St. George build the All Abilities Park, which was dedicated in the Fall of 2016.
The St. George Exchange Club is a local branch of America’s oldest service club, dedicated to promoting Americanism, Youth Programs, Community Service and Child Abuse Prevention.
Exchange-ites welcome men and women in the area who want to get involved to join them Thursday mornings at 7:30 a.m. at George’s Restaurant in Ancestor Square.
