Brig. Gen. Jefferson Burton accepts a copy of "City of Diversity" from Price Mayor Joe Piccolo during Wednesday's ribbon cutting ceremony at the newly reconstructed National Guard Armory. The 55-year-old armory has undergone more than $1 million in seismic and structural improvements. In his remarks, the assistant adjutant general of the Utah National Guard said the repair work will enable the Guard to continue here for another 55 years. "We can move armories," the general told the audience, but said the decision to repair the building was based in large part on the good relations between the National Guard and the community. Mayor Piccolo offered thanks to "the brave who make our freedom possible" in his remarks. The Carbon High School Jazz Choir sang the National Anthem and the school's concert band played a patriotic number. The ceremony also included the signing of the Price City Community Covenant by the mayor and city council. The covenant expresses support for the mission of the National Guard. The Price unit is slated to deploy to Afghanistan a year from now.
