ST. GEORGE — The St. George Exchange Club held their installation banquet at the Best Western Abby Inn on June 26th, and installed their new 2015-2016 Club President James McFadden. McFadden presented outgoing Club President, Shonie Christensen of the Allstate Shonie Insurance Group with a plaque for her leadership and dedication to the Club the past year.
The St. George Exchange Club meets weekly and their members are very involved in doing community projects throughout the community each year. The Club just received the Dixie Spirit Award From the Chamber of Commerce this past January.
The national charter is focused on child abuse prevention and the St. George Exchange Club is active with the area Children’s Justice Center. Some of the events sponsored by the St. George Exchange Club include Southern Utah Performing Arts Festival, The Ironman Kids Fun Run, St. George Marathon Mayor’s Walk, giveakidaflagtowave, and the local high school Student of the Month scholarship program. The St. George Exchange Club recently pledged a $100,000 donation to the City of St. George’s new All Abilities Park.
The St. George Exchange Club meets Thursday mornings at 7:30AM at George’s in Ancestor Square. For more information about the St. George Exchange Club, contact James McFadden at 435-632-7719.
