Dear Dixie Alumni,  


Thank you for your support at the tailgate parties. It has been great to see so many of you.  What a great opportunity it has been thus far to get together and enjoy a party in support of our athletic programs with fellow Dixie alums.  We have four more tailgates this season so come out and enjoy free food, and have some fun with us!


Homecoming is right around the corner which means we will have the opportunity to honor several alumni. This year we will be honoring the Whitwer brothers (Royden, Sheldon, Tony, & Melvin) and Tad & Willa Derrick. The banquet guest speakers will be Dave and Cheryl Rose. Get your Homecoming Banquet ticket now as seating will become limited. Cost is $14 per person. Contact Kalynn Larson at 435-652-7535.
