Last night the Bannock County Veterans Memorial Association (BCVMA) elected new Board members.
- President – Teresa Vialpando Gondola
- Vice President – Gary Truscott
- Treasurer – Denise Munsee
- Secretary – Lance Kolbet
- Historian – Miguel Angel Diaz Dominic
The Board members, who represent active veterans service organizations and auxiliaries in Bannock County, serve for one-year terms. They are charged with managing the business and affairs of the BCVMA.
Assisting with the election were volunteers from the Bannock County Elections office. They created ballots, set up voting booths, conducted the election, and counted the votes, with all members of BCVMA organizations present invited to look on during the vote counting process. Julie Hancock, Bannock County Elections Administrator, commented about her and other members of the Elections office staff volunteering to help the veterans with their election, “It’s a way for us to give back.”
The Bannock County Veterans Memorial Building (Building), managed by the BCVMA and located at 300 N. Johnson Avenue in Pocatello, officially opened a museum on Veterans Day. The museum is open to the public every weekday, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
