Check out noteworthy things done and honors received by cities around Idaho as they work to create quality cities.
The Burley Public Library will host the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibit, Water/Ways, from January 28 to March 12 and will hold a daylong conference exploring the issue of “Water in the West” on February 16, 2017. The exhibit and conference will be free and open to the public, but the conference requires advance registration.
On December 19th the City of Dover, Kaniksu Land Trust (KLT), and the East Bonner County Library celebrated their gift of a permanent StoryWalk™ program at the Dover City Park with a ribbon-cutting event. More than just a public grand opening, this event also acknowledged the gift that Veterans have given to our country. Veterans, teachers and volunteers participated in a special Christmas StoryWalk™ with children from local schools. The kids also made a special holiday craft and enjoyed snacks and warm drinks donated by local area businesses. While the Dover City Park StoryWalk™ location will be permanent, the stories and activities will continue to be changed periodically, providing young readers and their parents an opportunity to read, connect and get outside. Updates will be posted on www.eBonnerLibrary.org, www.kaniksulandtrust.org and www.cityofdover.id.gov.
The Wes Deist Aquatic Center in Idaho Falls celebrated its 30th birthday on December 26. The public was invited to join the festivities for a 30-cent admission fee. The event included gifts, cake and water games for all ages.
The City of Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department will host 2017 Cabin Fever Day on January 7, with more than a dozen venues that include martial arts, tile painting, swimming, golfing, and much more. This annual event hosts free activities that encourage residents to break the “cabin fever” by getting out and staying active in the community. Cabin Fever Day is a partnership between the City and several area businesses, which work together to provide fun activities for residents of all ages.
