Have your morning coffee or tea in these mugs celebrating the American Farmer and Trucker!

Pocatello’s POW*MIA Awareness Association is raffling off the chance to take a backseat flight in a P-51 Fighter during the POW*MIA Awareness Rally and Motorcycle Rodeo, scheduled for July 24-25, 2020.  The winner, who must be 18 or older, will make their way to Rexburg the morning of the flight and join the pilot during a fly-by of the Rodeo.  Tickets are only $5, and the winner need not be present to win.  The drawing will be held on July 17, 2020, at Liberty Hall during the General Meeting of the POW*MIA Awareness Association.

Other items being raffled include a mini-bike, a beautiful quilt donated by The Sewing Room, and gift baskets donated by local businesses.

To get your tickets, stop by the elwen cottage, 334 N. Main Street in Pocatello on Saturday morning between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  There, you’ll find POW*MIA Facilities Manager Teresa Deighton out front with tickets for the raffles, raffle items for you to check out, and handcrafted items for sale.

While there, be sure to take a look at the vintage treasures and custom home decor in the Elwen Cottage.  The members of the POW*MIA Awareness Association especially wish to thank the elwen cottage Owner, Wendy Vaughn, for graciously allowing them a space to promote the raffle and their organization.
