An enormous thank you goes out to the class and Board of Directors from Leadership Pocatello.  Last Thursday members spent their afternoon planting the Old Town flower pots on the East side, planted 15 new flower pots for the West side and cleaned up Leadership Pocatello Park, Dudunake Park and the downtown reach of the Greenway.  We appreciate the hard work and commitment to helping keep our downtown beautiful!

Portneuf Valley Bike to Work is sponsoring the Annual Bike Parade this Friday at the Old Town Pavilion.  Activities begin at 5pm with the parade at 6:15pm.  The parade is approximately 2 miles and starts and ends at the Old Town Pavilion.  Old Town Pocatello is providing hot dogs, chips and drinks for parade participants. The Pocatello Police Department will be on hand to provide free bicycle registering.  Other activities include a bounce house and music.  Plan now to dress up, dress up your bike and come enjoy this fun family event to celebrate Bike to Work Month.

Pinehurst Nursery has been growing our hanging flower baskets inside their greenhouse and it’s almost time for their debut.  Weather permitting, the baskets will go up this Thursday.  The staff from Myers Anderson Architects will be putting the baskets up as a community service project. There will be 17 baskets hung on East Center and 80 baskets hung on the West side of Old Town, all thanks to the sponsors that fund the baskets each year. Do you sponsor a basket? If not, now’s the time to become a sponsor and help contribute to this on-going downtown beautification project. The sponsor form is available on our website, www.oldtownpocatello.com , or you can call the Pocatello-Chubbuck Chamber of Commerce for more information, 208-233-1525.  Thank you to all of our current sponsors for making these beautiful flower basket possible!
