The City of Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission will be celebrating Idaho Day by asking the community to join them in showing appreciation for several of our local heroes.
Friday, March 4 at noon in the Pocatello City Council Chambers, the group will be hosting a short program in conjunction with the statewide theme of “Idaho Heroes: Past or Present.” Among those honored will be Medal of Honor recipient James Johnson, Cooperative Wilderness Handicapped Outdoor Group (C.W. HOG) founder Tom Whittaker, educator Rulon Ellis, and author Idaho Purce.
Also included on the agenda is a presentation on Bannock County’s place in Idaho history by Lynn Murdock and an Idaho Day proclamation reading by Pocatello City Council President Steve Brown. A light lunch will be served.
Idaho Day was established by the State Legislature in 2014. This special day is held every March 4 in recognition of Idaho’s creation as a territory March 4, 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln.
