The Classy Car Club supporting our community

May 21, 2019

POCATELLO - At the third annual Pine Ridge Mall Car Show, members of the Classy Car Club gathered together and raised money to help support the Idaho Gold Star Families Memorial that will be at the new North Gate community area of Pocatello. Our club, the Classy Car Club, raised and donated $2,000.00 for this great monument.

The Gold Star Families Memorial Monument is to honor Gold Star Families, preserve the memory of the fallen and stand as a stark reminder that freedom is not free. This stunning black granite monument features two sides. One side bears the words: “Gold Star Families Memorial Monument, a tribute to Gold Star Families and Relatives who have sacrificed a Loved One for our Freedom.” The other side tells a story through the four granite panels: Homeland, family, patriot and sacrifice. The scenes on each panel are a reflection of each community’s Gold Star Families and their fallen heroes. At the center of this tribute is the most distinct feature of the monument--the cut out which represents the loved one who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.
