We invite all veterans, service members, and their families to the Ninth Annual Farm Bureau Salute to Idaho Veterans.
Friday, November 8, 2019
10:30 am – 1:00 pm
Admission is free. Please RSVP.
The “Salute” is a prelude to the longstanding traditions that local Veterans Service Organizations have carried out each year on Veterans Day. It’s also our way of saying “thank you” to our Pocatello-area veterans for their service to our country.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP by October 31, 2019 to Mike Myers at (208) 239-4276 or email@example.com
