“Idaho: there’s a unique New Year’s tradition

The iconic Times Square New Year’s ball drop is one of the most famous traditions when it comes to ringing in the New Year. However, Boise residents have found a more unique (and more state-appropriate) way to welcome 1 January. Since 2013, thousands of spec-taters have gathered at the Idaho State Capitol every year to watch the Idaho Potato Drop – a giant, illuminated GlowTato is lowered from above as the clock strikes midnight. We’d expect nothing less from Idaho.”

Wish Granters

We are so excited to announce our July non-profit winner WISH GRANTERS! Wish Granters was founded in July 2010 by Doug Raper. Doug received several requests for wishes for adults while working with a children’s wish organization. It was then that he decided to start an organization that would grant wishes to those bravely dealing with a terminal illness but who did not qualify for a wish from any other organization. The first wish granted was on December 17, 2010, to a gentleman diagnosed with ALS. His wish was for a helicopter ride, which he was able to do with his wife and two sons.

Thank you for join us in the Mountain America Credit Union Family Tent for New Year’s Eve 2020-2021!
