Engaging Eagle

June 2015
Reflecting with Mayor Reynolds
Saturday Markets happen all over the world. How blessed we are to have our own market in the heart of downtown Eagle. Everything that you hope to find at a market can be found right in our own backyard. Take a stroll this Saturday and every Saturday through October and discover the joys of our town. 
Enjoy the activities of our city and remember...Pass it on! 
Mayor Jim Reynolds
Volunteer of the Month
Conner Oberst
The City of Eagle recognizes the importance of volunteerism and is taking a moment to thank those who selflessly give of themselves to the community. A plaque will be displayed in the lobby recognizing these outstanding volunteers. 
Conner has been working with the Eagle Police Department through the Boise State University Criminal Justice Program. Conner's primary role has been public education resource development. Conner has also been providing operation support for police services in the community. He has been able to participate in patrol and investigative support roles. His effort has allowed deputies and detectives to focus on the most critical elements of their caseload. 
His work has created educational materials and resource library. This has advanced our initiative of community education. 
Conner has made a significant impact on the City of Eagle. It is a privilege to nominate him for volunteer service recognition.  ~Chief Patrick Calley

JUNE featured Artists
Title: “If There Is Any Way I Can Be Of Service, Don’t Mention It.”

The Gallery at St. Luke's - Jeff Leedy, “Are You Laughing At My Art?”
This is an artist who comes to make you laugh. Wait a minute. This is ART! I'm not supposed to laugh, am I?
Yes you are, especially when you entered Art That Makes You Laugh®, the Leedy humor galleries formerly located in Sausalito and Mendocino, California. This is the work of Jeff Leedy, internationally known fine art humorist.
Whether you crack up at "Counsel Approaching The Bench" or "Dogus Interruptus", you’ll find yourself in a lighter, happier mood.  Jeff Leedy's art just makes people happy. 
The Gallery at Eagle City Hall - Karen Hickman
My introduction to art started over 20 years ago when I started tole painting. I soon needed a greater challenge and thought watercolor would be interesting. I enrolled in a local class with artist Roland Giampoli. It was quite a challenge as me tendency was to watercolor the same way I did tole painting. One memorable day the concept of watercolor came together and a passion for this medium was sparked.
