September Dinner Meeting & Scholarship Fundraiser

  • Hyrum Smith home 150 West 1400 North Gunlock, UT (map)

Our dinner meeting on September 19 will be our annual fundraiser for the scholarship awards. Once again it will be held at the beautiful Eagle Mountain Ranch in Gunlock, which is owned by Gail and Hyrum Smith. After the dinner, colorful St. George resident and prominent doctor, Dr. Craig Booth will speak to us. 

A fifth-generation resident of St. George, Craig is a graduate of Dixie High, Dixie Junior College,  the University of Utah, and the University of Utah Medical School. After a two-year residency at UCLA-Harbor General Hospital, he returned to St. George where he served the community as a  general practitioner, delivering over 2,500 babies and 200 gall bladders and affectionately earning him the nickname “Doc Booth.” He later became the first medical director of Dixie Regional Medical Center and president of the medical staff,  retiring in 2016. Craig served on the Dixie Regional Medical Center’s governing board for 20 years and the Intermountain Healthcare board for three years.  He was a founding member of The Village Bank and the St. George Exchange Club.  Craig served a two-year mission in the North Central States for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He and his wife, Maureen, later served as president of the Arizona Phoenix Mission from 2002-05. They have five children (all graduates of Dixie College) and lots of  grandchildren.
