Spice Up The Night Sends Care Packages To Soldiers

People in Pocatello are worked to give back to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan as they remembered 9/11 on Sunday.

The second Spice up the Night event was held at Courtesy Ford in Pocatello Sunday evening. Complete with members of the local POW-MIA, the National Guard and the Pocatello Fire Department, the event was a bit of a celebration.

Organizer Brontee Sherer, 17, was just 13 when she held the first event in 2007. She wanted to do it again for the 10 year anniversary. People brought spices and hard candy to the event, amenities that soldiers do not readily have, and the items will be flown overseas.

“I just thought that, you know, the military and the victims of 9/11, we needed to make sure what that they stood for (wasn’t lost) and (we should) have them always in our hearts and everything like that. Make sure that the military knows that we’re still thinking about them and that we still support them,” Brontee said.

The event included a silent auction for charity and lasted until 7 p.m.
