The North Idaho Veterans Stand Down will be held on Saturday, May 11th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at North Idaho College, 1000 W. Garden Avenue, Coeur d’Alene.  The annual event was a program created by St. Vincent de Paul as a means 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, clothing repair, food assistance, haircuts, and bike repair will also be available.  Additionally, employers with job openings will be accepting applications and interviewing candidates.  Breakfast and lunch will be served to all attendees, volunteers, and service providers.
The Stand Down 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 Eric Swanbeck, Veteran Services Coordinator at St. Vincent de Paul, (208)664-3095 or email at eric@stvincentdepaulcda.org.

Welcome Silver Valley into changing Ideas into Actions.  We will be having our first meeting to review the upcoming changes that are about to take place in the Silver Valley.  If you were not able to attend the “Planning for the Future” presentation done by the EPA / DEQ this past month, we will quickly review the results, however, this is where things change.  Instead of just listening to the Ideas, we are going to create a community group that will start the Implementation of these changes.  In fact, this Group has already Partnered with Silver Valley Holdings, LLC and facilitated the purchase of the damaged building in uptown Kellogg to remediate and open not just one but all three commercial spaces that have been closed for over 13 years.  We also will be creating the venue to possibly even purchase and develop some and/or all of the DEQ properties that are going to be given back to the Silver Valley for our Community Use.  This will require a complete unity within the Valley to achieve, however, this meeting is the first step for this endeavor.  The Meeting will be May 16th and 21st at 114 McKinley Avenue in uptown Kellogg at 6pm.  Please invite anyone whom you may think that would like to make this OUR VALLEY with OUR IDEAS.   Let's Make this Change Together!    Please register below as there is a seating limit and we look forward to seeing you there.
