A set of four proclamations will be read at Thursday’s meeting of the Pocatello City Council.
The first is a joint proclamation that will see Mayor Brian Blad joining with Chubbuck Mayor Kevin England and the Bannock County Commissioners to proclaim September 17 to 23 as “Kind Community Week.” The edict urges “citizens to be more than bystanders when it comes to kindness” and “make the choice every day to be kind and integrate kindness into your daily lives.” Councilwoman Beena Mannan will read the proclamation.
The second declares September to be National Recovery Month and seeks to raise awareness of mental illness and addiction disorders. Also, the decree calls upon the people of Pocatello to observe the month “with appropriate programs, activities, and ceremonies supporting this year’s theme, ‘Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community.’” Councilman Roger Bray will read the edict.
The third proclaims September to be Assistance Dog Month in the Gate City. The proclamation urges “the citizens of Pocatello to become educated on the importance of assistance dogs and their significance in our community.” Councilwoman Heidi Adamson will read this proclamation.
The fourth proclamation establishes September 17 through 23 as Constitution Week. The edict asks “citizens to reaffirm the ideals the Framers of the Constitution had in 1787 by vigilantly protecting the freedoms guaranteed to us through this guardian of our liberties and remembering that lost rights may never be regained.” Councilwoman Linda Leeuwrik will read the proclamation.
Thursday’s meeting will begin at 6 p.m.
