Greetings Patriots,

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. Now that 2020 is upon us it’s planning time for the Rally. This is a pretty special Rally. This will be the 20th Annual POW*MIA Awareness Rally and Motorcycle Rodeo! How time flies when you’re having fun.

20th Annual POW*MIA Awareness Rally
July 24 & 25, 2020
Bannock County Event Center Fairgrounds, Pocatello

January’s General Meeting will be Friday, January 17 at 7pm at Liberty Hall. Hope you will join us. There are many jobs that will need someone to take a lead on. The Rally, and all the other events that we are involved in, takes the whole membership to accomplish. If you are a member and haven’t been active in a while come join us.  We would love seeing you. If you know someone that is interested, but has never been a part of us, bring them to the meeting. We would love to see lots of participation, so come join us, step up, and get involved.
Please read the attached November General Membership Meeting Minutes so we will be able to take a vote to accept or amend them. There were no minutes for December because that was our Christmas Party in lieu of December’s meeting.
Also, the generous ladies at the Sewing Room are looking for old t-shirts to make a quilt for raffle at the Rally. They always do such a great job making us a beautiful quilt. If you have any t-shirts with military designs, old rally shirts, or even old military uniforms that you would like to get rid of please bring them to the meeting. Thank you.
Come by the Chubbuck CAL Ranch Store, Saturday, January 25 for the 13th Annual Sportsmen’s Against Hunger Fundraiser. We will have a table with posters of pictures from our 20 years along with pictures of Idaho’s missing Vietnam Vets. This is a fundraiser for the Idaho Food Bank. Stop by and try your hand at winning many great prizes.

As many of you probably already know Jerry Tydeman passed away in December. Jerry was a very dedicated member of our organization for many years and he will be missed. Jill and Wade are having a Celebration of Life for Jerry Saturday, February 1 at 4pm at Liberty Hall. Everyone is invited and asked to bring a dish to share and any funny memories that you have of him.

The Elko Chili Feed is Saturday, February 15th at the Conference Center, 700 Moren Way in ElkoEveryone is invited. This event raises money for National League of Families and is a good time. If anyone from our Association plans on attending, please let me know and we will get more information to you.

Thank you for all you do,
