ISU Veterans’ Sanctuary Program to host family day and barbecue

Posted April 26, 2010

The Veterans’ Sanctuary Program and Armed Forces Veterans Club at Idaho State University would like to invite all veterans and military members in the area to a free barbecue and family day at the zoo on May 1 at Lower Ross Park.

The event, which will include a performance by the ISU Steel Drum Band, food, zoo admission and more, will run from 1 to 5 p.m.  Grilled items, such as hamburgers and hotdogs, will be served until 3 p.m.

There will also be a table set up for donations to support the family of Jessica Joy Wardlow, a local teen who was killed in a car accident last month. Jessica’s mother, Melissa Hartman, is the Bannock County veterans’ representative and she has helped countless veterans in the community.

Event sponsors include the City of Pocatello, Texas Roadhouse, the Army Reserve 1016th Quartermaster Co., Idaho State University and Costco.

If your business or organization would like to help support this community event, please contact Casey Santee at 282-4298.
