On Monday, Legislators celebrated Idaho Day in the Capitol. Idaho Day, March 4th, was established to commemorate the creation of the Idaho Territory by President Abraham Lincoln on that day in 1863. Each year, Idaho Day is enjoyed across the Gem State by schools, universities, state agencies, and other organizations. In both the House and Senate, performances and speeches were given to commemorate this special day. In the Senate Chambers, students from Madison High School sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” and our state song “Here We Have Idaho”; speeches were given by Senators highlighting the uniqueness of their respective hometowns. In the House Chambers, performances were given by Roosevelt Elementary 4th grade students. A special thanks to the Association of Idaho Cities, Brigadier General Garshak, Command Sergeant Major Scott White and the Idaho Army National Guard Honor Guard who also assisted in the House ceremonies.
