Now that the holidays are over it is time for us to kick off 2019’s Rally Planning. As you know we are back to our old stomping grounds in Pocatello. WELCOME HOME! It’s a New Year and we will have new challenges, so it is extremely important for our membership to get involved and give us your input. 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. The Rally will be here before we know it.
Come by the Chubbuck CAL Ranch Store January 26 from 10-4 for the Annual Sportsmen Against Huger Fundraiser. We will have a table set up for this worthwhile event which raises money for the Idaho Food Bank. Stop by and try your hand at winning many great prices including a Sig Sauer AR-15, a Liberty Gun Safe, and a pellet gun specifically for kids 12 and under while helping the Idaho Food Bank.
The Elko Chili Feed is February 16th at the Conference Center 700 Moren Way in Elko and everyone is invited. If anyone from our Association plans on attending please let me know, so we can let the Elko Association know how many to expect.
The next POW*MIA General Membership meeting is February 22 @ 7:00pm at Liberty Hall, 325 W. Benton, Pocatello, ID. All are welcome.

13th Annual Bikers for Blood Community Blood Drive Results for 2018
I want to thank Bluuue and Chops for a job well done with the Bikers for Blood Drive this year! They spent many hours calling and getting volunteers to reach our goal! We had 61 people come in and 9 of them gave double power red units for a total of 66 units collected. This just goes to show that with the efforts of volunteers we can reach the goals that we set for ourselves. I also want to thank all the people that helped saved lives by giving their time and blood to this cause. 66×3=198 lives saved! Photo Gallery
Wreaths Across America
I want to thank everyone that came out and participated along with the ones that purchased wreaths for this event. I also want to thank the Civil Air Patrol Cadets for their invite to be a part of the ceremony. We laid 45 wreaths and the Soda Gang laid 60 wreaths this year. I would also like to thank the young man that played taps I think he did a fine a job. It was an honor for the POW*MIA organization to pay tribute to those veterans that are lying in that cemetery. They are not forgotten! Photo Gallery
Again thank you all!
