Members of the Utah National Guard along with community leaders gathered for the re-opening of the Richfield armory and signing of the Community Covenants charter Thursday, May 12. The armory has undergone an $1.3 million dollar renovation and upgrade. The Community Covenants charter is a way of formalizing the support a community has for area military personnel who are being deployed. The Utah National Guard 222nd Field Artillery Battalion, which includes batteries based in Richfield, Cedar City, Beaver and St. George, is set to deploy in June. For more about the event, see the May 18 edition of The Richfield Reaper.
