Upcoming Tours

 
Tour: Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF)
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019, 9:30 am - 11:00 am
112 N Pilatus Ln, Nampa, ID 83687
Mission Aviation was founded by a group of WWII pilots who had a vision for how their love of aviation, past careers and service to our country could be used to overcome barriers of terrain with a Christian emphasis designed to serve missions in countries worldwide. After the war, airmen in the US, UK and Australia founded missionary aviation services in their respective countries.

 

MAF's US office was the first to take to the air in February 1946 to a remote jungle in Mexico. MAF came to worldwide attention in 1956 when a MAF pilot and 4 other missionaries were martyred on a beach in Ecuador by Waorani Indians.

 

Today, MAF has grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of isolated people in the most remote places on earth, touching down in the middle of jungles or even on the sides of mountains, accomplishing so much - carrying missionaries, delivering medical personnel and medicine, providing disaster relief, translators, food and clean water supplies, and relief and development workers. MAF also provides technology solutions to otherwise inaccessible areas that are politically, religiously or geographically isolated.

 

In 2015, MAF served 600+ organizations in 16 countries, with 7 of those countries having restricted access to western missionaries. MAF has flown over 2 million miles, transported 86,262 passengers and delivered 8,360,134 pounds of cargo.

 

Join City Club of Boise to hear MAF's story and progress on their current world-wide projects and tour their Nampa Headquarters.

Tour: Downtown Boise Public Art
Thursday, October 3rd, 2018, 3:00 pm-4:30 pm
Karl LeClair
The City of Boise’s Department of Arts and History maintains a collection of over 700 works of public art. Downtown Boise boasts a robust concentration of works within the central business district and has been the focus of investment for the past twenty years. Join Public Art staff on a walking tour to explore and learn the story behind some of the City’s most iconic and well-loved works. The Tour will cover the Basque Block, BoDo, the Grove Plaza, Freak Alley, and Main Street Station along with other artwork within the streetscape.

 

“In 2001, the Boise City Council passed an ordinance directing that 1.4% of all capital project funds be set aside for the integration of public art into city facilities.” Through the Percent-for-Art program, a concept popularized in cities across the U.S., professionally produced murals, performances, sculptures, mosaics, installations, and more are systematically integrated into the Boise Airport, Boise WaterShed, Foothills Learning Center, branch libraries, fire stations, throughout the city’s magnificent parks, and integrated into the streetscapes throughout all areas of the City.
