It seems like we were just gearing up for summer vacation and now all of the sudden the kids are heading back to school. I used to laugh at people who would say time seems to go faster as you get older but as I have gotten older…time seems to go faster! So with fall just around the corner, not only are our younger kids heading back to school but so are those students attending ISU.

With that in mind now is the perfect time to remind you that I Love ISU is just on the horizon and it’s time to break out your orange and black and get excited for one of the best campaigns of the year. A new energy and focus has this event primed and ready to be not only fun and exciting but to raise money to support freshman scholarships to ISU. It is so important to support our best and brightest; investing in ourselves and keeping our own right here in our community.

This year the event will kick-off with a Business BEFORE Hours and Ribbon cutting on Thursday, September 1st.  This will be a great way to start off the campaign and raise awareness amoung our business community.  On Friday, September 2nd the campaign gets another boost at the Chamber All Member Meeting as the main program for the day. The event kicks into full gear with calling beginning in Idaho Falls on September 7th and then our local teams start calling on Monday, September 12th.  The campaign concludes with an all-out celebration up at the Portneuf Wellness Complex on Thursday, September 15th.

This is such an important campaign in our community so I would encourage each and every member of our Chamber to get involved. Be on a calling team, share and spread the word locally about the event, donate and come join in the I Love ISU celebration!
