“We’re sorry to announce that the midway carnival canceled with us today. After this incident and last years late setup and other issues we will no longer be holding our annual carnival as a fundraiser. With the carnival scheduled two days away we won’t be able to find an alternative. If you have advanced tickets already bought you can contact us and we will refund them or we will be set up Thursday night at the location the carnival was supposed to be at to exchange them there as well. We are sorry for this we know many people enjoy going but hopefully we can find a more reliable, equally enjoyable alternative in the years to come.” – Iron County Search and Rescue

I have a feeling the locals will still call it the Centrum. Catchy and much easier to say. America First isn’t even a local company.
America First will pay $1.5 million for ten years for the naming rights.
The SUU Centrum hosts SUU basketball, gymnastics and volleyball, concerts, graduations, high school basketball tournaments and Utah Summer Games events.
