Greetings Veterans and Patriots,
Mark your calendars!
21st Annual POW*MIA Awareness Rally and Motorcycle Rodeo
Bannock County Event Center – Fairgrounds July 23 and 24, 2021
Come celebrate our 21st with us; we’re Barely Legal!
One thing that will be different at the Rally this year is that Bannock County will be handling the camping. They are working on their website to take reservations. We will let you know when they are ready to take reservations, so you can get your camping spot.
Rally Entertainment is coming along. The Rodeo Crew has been having planning meetings. It is always exciting to have them back because they always do such a great job putting on an entertaining, fun Rodeo! Joe has the bands signed. Scarlet Rain out of Utah will be the Friday night band.
Cold Dark Whiskey will be the Saturday night band. Many who attended the Rally asked for their return after the great concert they put on last year.
Portneuf Valley Bruisers are going to run the bike wash once again and Stasia Acrobats will be back to perform. The Rally is coming together!
If you would like to take part in the of planning the 2021 Rally, please join us. There are still many positions that need someone to help or even take the lead. If you would like to get involved, we would love to have you.
Our next General Meeting is Friday, May 21 at 7pm Liberty Hall, 325 W. Benton, Pocatello.
It has been great being able to get together again. I hope to see many old and new faces at the meeting.
We will have copies of Idaho’s Edition of Vietnam War 50th Commemoration A Time To Honor at the meeting if anyone is interested in picking up a book. It is a very beautifully written book with lots of individual stories of the war. This book was written to recognize and pay tribute to our Vietnam Veterans. If you know of a Vietnam Veteran that would like to have this book, please come pick one up.
In other news, Highway Bill 132 which is designated to have the portion of US Highway 26 located in Idaho beginning at the Oregon border and ending at the Wyoming border be known as the POW/MIA Memorial Highway has been passed in the House and the Senate and has gone to the Governor’s desk to be signed today at 11am!
Thank you for all you do!
Thank you for all you do!
