District 5420 has had two Assemblies this year, but both were board training seminars (BETS) so it’s time for a real, honest-to-goodness, official District Assembly. Join us online on Saturday, February 6, 2021 from 9 – 10:30 am. This district-wide assembly will include a STATE OF THE DISTRICT address by Governor Linda Sappington … and friends, all who will share the most up-to-date information on where District 5420 is in membership development, foundation giving and other areas of impact.
By now, you have no doubt heard about the district’s exciting and impactful Native American Initiative? You’ll be very impressed to hear what’s happened to help our native Utahns in just a few months. We will also be honored to hear from Darren Parry, the former chairman of the Northwest Band of the Shoshone Nation. He is the driving force behind the proposed Northwest Band of the Shoshone Nation Boa Ogoi Cultural Interpretive Center. Parry served on the boards of the American West Heritage Center (Logan, UT) and the Utah State Museum Board. He has also served on the Advisory Board of the Huntsman Cancer Center (SLC, UT). An educator by training, in secondary education with an emphasis in history, Darren graduated from Weber State University (Ogden, UT). During the last year (2019-2020) he ran for election, unsuccessfully, to the U.S. House to represent Utah’s 1st Congressional District. In 2017 he was a recipient of the Esto Pepetua Award from the Idaho State Historical Society, for one who has preserved and promoted the history of Idaho.
