In recognition of Disability Awareness Month during October, Dawn Enterprises conducted an open house in Blackfoot. The facility is at 280 Cedar St. in Blackfoot.
The company has been in business 35 years. It helps disabled individuals, be they socially, mentally or physically challenged.
On Monday, guests were invited to tour the facility.
In the production part of the business, hoods are contracted to be made for a number of companies or entities.
With a resounding "ARRRGHH" and a theme of "Books Ahoy," students at Stoddard Elementary School in Blackfoot kicked off their third annual reading challenge Friday as part of the Idaho Reads! VISTA [Volunteers In Service To America] program.
Annie Tanner, Idaho Reads! VISTA representative for Stoddard, said the whole purpose of the program is to promote family literacy and encourage parent involvement in the school.
