The Foundation has funded the addition of the Children’s Emergency Center at Sacred Heart. The Winemaker’s Dinner is in March which is one of their two fundraising events of the year.

Join us this Wednesday, February 7th for a special speaker, Brian Fretwell.
 
 

Brian is the founder of Why We Win inc., a Consulting company based in Boise, Idaho. As a speaker, coach, or consultant, Brian’s singular focus is on helping people understand Why We Win, so they can create the future success that is important to them.

Most consulting companies, and speakers, spend their time telling companies what they are doing wrong, where they are at risk, or how to dissect what might have went wrong. Brian spends his time helping people realize what they do right, what went well, and how they are in control of the successes they have achieved…so they can do it again.

Brian has spent his life working to extract value from industries and individuals challenged with change and uncertainty for the last twenty years. From heavy industries dealing with changing economics to drug addicts changing their lives he has become convinced that the biggest potential for growth comes from becoming Experts of Our Potential, which just happens to be the title of his most recent book.

Steven Kjergaard with the Kootenai County Airport Director will be our guest speaker.
 
Steven Kjergaard started with Kootenai County as the Airport Director in April of this year.  He is a 2007 graduate of the University of Minnesota, where he obtained a Bachelor's Degree in marketing and aviation management. In addition, he holds several certifications related to airport operations and is a member of the American Association of Airport Executives and the Airports Council International.
 
Steven comes to our airport with substantial experience in regional airport management, having spent the last six years as the Director of the Sloulin Field International Airport in Williston, North Dakota. Prior to that, he also served in airport operations for two years with Afco AvPorts. His work experience has included all aspects of regional airport development and maintenance, including working knowledge of airport zoning administration, federal aviation administration processes & procedures, as well as promotion & marketing experience.

He will be telling us what is happening at the airport and future plans.
