Hope you had fun!

We had a great group at Fort Scott Park yesterday for the Pioneer Day BBQ! It was hot and humid, but everyone still came out to eat some great Cafe Rio food and hang out with their Utah friends. We had almost 200  new people sign up for this event in addition to our other Utah State Society faithful members.

Events like this are wholly made possible by our sponsors. These are companies, organizations, and individuals who are great friends of Utah and are anxious to help Utahns who have made their way out here to D.C. If you haven’t made it out to one of our events yet, please join us for one of our events coming up later this year. At the event yesterday we had finance professionals, consultants, lobbyists, congressional staffers and lawyers in attendance just to name a few.

Just click the Join The Group button at the top of this page to hear about our next event.

Pioneer Day BBQ only 2 weeks away

We are getting excited about our upcoming Pioneer Day celebration on July 23rd! It will be at Fort Scott Park in Arlington from 12-2 pm. We have teamed up with    some great partners to shake things up a little bit. The pressure is on…Black or Pinto. That’s right, our Utah friend Cafe Rio will be providing the catering. Visiting with your Utah friends, playing some fun pioneer games, and eating Cafe Rio food, you might just forget that you’re not in Utah, until you remember how humid it is outside.
   
Every attendee will also receive a raffle ticket with chances to win free meals from Cafe Rio, tickets to the DC United vs. Real Salt Lake Game @ RFK Stadium, and some DC United swag. We will have live music and games going on the whole time. This is intended to be a kid friendly event, so please bring the family. Also, important to note, this is a BYOB picnic- Bring Your Own Blanket! There are only so many park benches and tree stumps to go around, so bring a blanket for you and your family to sit on.

If you have not registered for the event yet, please reserve your spot by clicking here ASAP!! Remember, it’s free.
