Local Am-Vets are planning a Veterans Day event 

Lance Kolbet, the Chair of Am-Vets of Bengal Post 1901 says they will be hosting the very first James E. Johnson endowment dinner on Veterans Day, November 11th.

The event will be held at the Stephens Performing Arts Center on the ISU campus.

The money raised from the event will go towards veterans scholarships at Idaho State University.

"The good thing about this is when we have our veterans that attend Idaho State University, the veterans are not going to have to compete for scholarships all across the whole United States so the perimeters of these scholarships is that you live and reside within Bannock County, so the scope will be a lot more narrow and so therefore we should be able to have more of our veterans actually getting funding that are right here at Idaho State University," says Lance Kolbet, Chair of Am-Vets of Bengal Post 1901.

Their goal is to raise around $31,000 dollars in table sales.
