A Special “Thanks” to Paul Dickey with ISU’s Continuing Education & Workforce Training Program (CEWT)
Paul has been wonderful in documenting the progress of the Idaho Gold Star Families Memorial Monument with his superb videography skills. Paul works on the CEWT team as the Apprenticeship Coordinator and Training Videographer. He volunteers his time to produce such wonderful video of this project. In addition to the short video updates he has been producing, Paul plans to develop a more extensive documentary upon completion of the monument and plaza.
A major milestone! Our formal groundbreaking was April 24, 2019.
Dedication – May 28, 2021
