On behalf of the Idaho Veterans Parade Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to promote and participate in the 19th Annual Idaho Veterans Parade. The parade is scheduled for 10:00 AM Saturday, November 5, 2022 in downtown Boise, Idaho, beginning with our opening ceremony at the Capitol steps.
This year's parade theme is "75th Anniversary of the Air Force”. For 75 years, American Airmen have excelled as they execute the Air Force mission to fly, fight, and win — delivering airpower anytime, anywhere in defense of our nation.
Airmen are called to “Innovate, Accelerate and Thrive” as the U.S. Air Force and Department of the Air Force approach their 75th anniversaries on Sept. 18, 2022. Airmen will always be there to provide America with the airpower it needs to defend the nation, deter or defeat our adversaries, reassure our partners and allies, and help diplomacy proceed from a position of strength.
We are asking your chamber and members to publicly promote, and if you wish, physically participate in this patriotic event.

The 100th Anniversary of Fire Prevention Week Spotlights the Importance of Fire Escape Planning
Local SERVPRO disaster remediation specialist offers property owners critical fire survival resources and answers fire damage FAQs
Garden City, ID (Grassroots Newswire) September 22, 2022 - During the week of October 9, 2022, the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) observes the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week™, the longest-running public health observance in the United States. The timing of the annual event commemorates the date of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than 2,000 acres of land.
In support of this year's theme for Fire Prevention Week 2 - "Fire won't wait. Plan your escape™" – fire and water cleanup and restoration specialist Christian Isaacson of SERVPRO® of Boise, reminds local home and business owners that the single most important thing to do when fire breaks out is to get out of the building. "This is especially true in a home fire," says Isaacson. "The NFPA warns that today's homes burn faster than ever, leaving residents two minutes or less to safely escape a home fire after the smoke alarm sounds."
According to the NFPA, your ability to escape from a fire depends on two things: early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning. Their Fire Prevention Week website (Fire Prevention Week) offers information and resources in English and Spanish to help property owners choose and maintain a smoke alarm, plan an escape route, and ensure that every person, including children and the elderly, knows what to do in case of a fire.
If your home is affected by fire, says Isaacson, the next challenge you face is cleanup and restoration. "This is where a disaster remediation specialist like SERVPRO can help," says Isaacson. "Our website offers answers to FAQs3 that can help you understand what you should do first after a fire, how the fire repair and restoration process works, and more. Even small fires or neighboring fires can cause extensive damage to walls, ceilings and contents in a home, so it's best to check with a professional to see if remediation is the way to go."
Additional fire-related frequently asked questions covered include:
a. What items can survive a house fire?
b. Can smoke damage be removed?
c. How much does it cost to fix a fire damaged house?
d. How to clean after fire damage?
e. What should I do with all the water that was used to put out the fire?
f. How to recognize and deal with smoke damage even if your home hasn't been directly impacted by fire?

BOISE ART MUSEUM ANNOUNCES
Willem Volkersz: The View From Here
October 8, 2022 – January 8, 2023
Montana-based artist Willem Volkersz (b. 1939) is a significant contemporary artist known for his neon and paint-by-number-style installations. He was a pioneer in the use of neon in art and developed early and sustaining loves for photography, travel, American roadside culture, Americana, and Folk and Visionary Art. Volkersz came to the United States from Holland in 1953, after the devastation of World War II, and brought with him a rich history that is reflected in his works of art. Volkersz has often said that he has an immigrant’s fascination with America, and as a teenager, he began hitchhiking and driving throughout the American West, camera in hand. The artworks featured in The View From Here were produced over the past 25 years and draw upon the artist’s eight decades of life experience. They touch upon his early life in Holland under Nazi occupation, his immigration to America, and his current life in the Western United States. The artworks also suggest the ways these personal experiences and passions connect to wider social issues of enduring relevance for everyone.
Volkersz studied art and architecture at the University of Washington before earning an MFA in painting at Mills College in Oakland, CA. After teaching at the Kansas City Art Institute for 18 years, he went to Montana State University-Bozeman in 1986 to direct the School of Art and teach until his retirement in 2001. His work has been featured in 46 solo exhibitions and in over 200 group shows in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, China, and Taiwan. He is the recipient of many awards, including a Fulbright Senior Scholar Award, grants from the Mellon Foundation and Gottlieb Foundation, and a 2020 Montana Governor’s Arts Award. He has been a visiting artist and lecturer at almost 100 institutions in the United States, Canada, Europe, and China.
This exhibition is organized by Brandon Reintjes, senior curator at the Missoula Art Museum (MAM), and travels throughout the Northwest through 2024 to the South Dakota Art Museum in Rapid City, SD; Boise Art Museum, ID; Missoula Art Museum, MT; and Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University in Salem, OR.
