North Idaho Veterans Stand Down @ North Idaho Veterans Stand Down
May 7 all-day

The North Idaho Veterans Stand Down will be held on Saturday, May 7th from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at North Idaho College, 1000 W. Garden Avenue, Coeur d’Alene. The annual event is a program created to assist veterans and their families in Eastern Washington and the five Northern Idaho counties.
In the military, Stand Down refers to a necessary mental and physical break from combat. Military personnel would spend time in a safe place to rest and recuperate before returning to the front lines. Today, Stand Down is an event that provides a safe place for veterans and their families to engage with veteran community resources. Veterans will have the opportunity to meet personally with VA healthcare and benefits representatives. Organizations that provide medical, dental, counseling, assistance with Wills, housing, clothing, food assistance, haircuts, and bike repair will also be available. Breakfast and lunch will be served to all attendees, volunteers, and service providers.
The Stand Down’s goal is to reach veterans who are homeless or at risk of being homeless as well as all veterans and their families. Through the work of volunteers and local organizations, this one-day event provides veterans and their families’ invaluable information and resources.

To volunteer, request more information, or for veterans’ assistance, please contact North Idaho Veterans Stand Down Inc, (208)964-2819 or email NorthIdahoVeteransStandDown@gmail.com.

May 14 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

There are many organizations in our community serving families in the A.L.I.C.E. population and the population of women in various stages of transition.  We are seeking to honor these women who don’t have many opportunities to “do something nice for themselves” while offering them resources and hope for a better future.

WHAT: We will honor these ladies with a luncheon at Best Western Coeur d’Alene.  Lunch time will feature Tammey Grable-Woodford a motivation speaker and cancer survivor providing hope and encouragement to overcoming life’s obstacles.

WHO:  We will work with our partners at UGM, The Kroc Center, St. Vincent DePaul, Your Friend Pamela Faye and similar non profit organizations in our community to identify those ladies who will most benefit from an event of this type.  Guest list will be capped at 50

Dozer Day is an annual, community event hosted by the excavation industry to give kids an opportunity to operate heavy construction equipment and enjoy many other excavation-related activities for less than the cost of going to the movies.

Kids hop in the driver’s seat and actually drive dozers, excavators and other heavy equipment with a professional operator at their side. Not only is it a dream-come-true for kids (and fun for the whole family), the event also benefits many children’s charities.
We are so excited to see everyone at Cabela’s Stateline for this family fun event. Dozer day has something for everyone with food, giveaways, pipe and tire crawls, garbage trucks, fire trucks, an ambulance, and many other awesome activities.
