Mrs. Bannock County - Kimberly Paige

Service Saturday is one Saturday each month that many community projects open their doors to extra help. This last Service Saturday I was able to help Habitat for Humanity put together all of their pictures for decorations. It was wonderful to go through all the pictures and see how much they have done for others. I was able to talk to them more about volunteering, and they were excited to get a public figure to have a voice for them in the community. Can't wait to tackle the next project they send my way!

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. ONE BILLION RISING IS: A global strike An invitation to dance A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given A new time and a new way of being

The event at Westy's Garden Lanes raised awareness, support, and funds for the Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) program. CCI is the largest non-profit provider of assistance dogs for people with disabilities other than blindness. We had a great time supporting an AMAZING program.

"Barkers Beauties"

 Sunday is a Canine Companion that works in the court system helping little kids when they have to testify. Sunday helped us through our court process and to see the difference she made for my sweet little Madison was amazing. I got a little teary eyed when I saw her again today. She was with my family on one of the hardest days of our lives.

I had the opportunity to be apart of the Idaho Miss Amazing pageant. It was an incredible experience to meet and watch 22 beautiful girls with disabilities shine like super stars in interview and on stage! We laughed, we cried and we had a great time.

Jennifer Claassen (red dress) is the director of the Miss Amazing Pageant.  She put on an amazing program for these girls and we are so excited to have such an incredible woman running for Mrs. Idaho.   Jennifer Claassen in now Mrs. City of Trees!
