Pat Jones, the 2013 Kuna Days Chairman who has announced that he is stepping down told us that the Kuna Lions Club has offered to take on the leadership role for 2014 Kuna Days. The Kuna Lions non-profit 501c3 status will benefit the planning and fundraising for Kuna Days. Jones, also a member of Kuna Lions Club, said that he will act in an advisory role for next year’s event.
Kuna Days has always been about groups and individuals coming together to create a larger, more expansive event. This year the Kuna Rural Fire district with their BBQ, the Boy Scouts with their pancake breakfast, the owners of Cowgirls who put on a concert and then hosted the street dance the next night, volunteers who took on the role of scheduling all the entertainment, the volunteer who stepped up and acted as a crossing guard all day on Saturday are just examples of everyone coming together to create a bigger event.
Kuna Melba News will be there. We are currently a staff of two, but we will be offering up our time and ideas to make the 2014 Kuna Days, and the
150 anniversary of Kuna, very special. We challenge you to do the same.
