Right to Life of Idaho is excited to host special guest, Ramona Trevino, at the annual March for Life in Boise. Ramona is the former director of Planned Parenthood in Sherman, Texas, and author of “Redeemed by Grace.” She will be sharing her remarkable conversion testimony at this year’s March for Life. The 2016 March for Life takes place on Saturday, Jan. 23, at 1 p.m. The march leaves from Julia Davis Park in downtown Boise and concludes with a rally on the steps of the state capitol. Also on Jan. 23, the March for Life will be preceded by the Life Mass at St. John’s Cathedral at 11 a.m. This is sponsored by the St. John’s Social Justice and Idaho Catholics Respect Life. On Friday evening before the March for Life, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m., Ramona will also be sharing her testimony at St. Mark’s Parish Hall, 7960 W Northview Street in Boise.

The Triparish communities received a nice thank you card from the Kamiah Fire Relief Fund Board for the money that was collected last fall and sent to those who lost homes in the fires. We collected and sent $8,733.21. A grand total of $368,256 was raised for the fund and 100 percent was paid out to fire victims. Isn’t it wonderful what people will donate when the need arises?
Another story I heard about is one from Cottonwood VFW Post Commander Joe Reiner about a heartfelt donation received by the post.
It seems that Jack Chambers, 8-year-old son of Barney and Bobbi Chambers, who own Coyote Mule Company, really wanted to help out the veterans when he was at Keuterville Pub & Grub with his folks by buying some VFW raffle tickets but was told he was too young to do so. He then gave Linda $5 and told her to give that to the veterans. Riener said the VFW Post is very appreciative of young Jack’s donation and have put that money into their relief fund.
