Eagle is HOME!
November is a month that somewhat concludes the changing of the season. October usually starts the noticeable change and November finishes it off. Leaves turn and drop, morning frost often becomes the norm and we usually get our first snow of the season. 

November is a month we celebrate our nation’s men and women who served in the military. This year, the Veterans Day Parade is November 5 in Boise; in addition to the traditional parade, a special event to celebrate women who served is set for the same morning. 

November is also the month for free curbside pickup of leaves, leaf bags are available at City Hall, and a food donation is suggested. The food donations will be given to the Eagle Food Bank for distribution. What better time of the year, a time of Thanksgiving, to show support to those in need. 

November is sports month. The World Series, college football reveries, high school playoffs in many sports and, of course, those traditional family football games played on Thanksgiving Day.    

November is election month, please get out and vote. For those who would like to vote early the Eagle Senior Center/Community Center is open through November 4 for early voting. Here in Idaho, we have no excuse early voting, also known as same day voting. Traditionally, with the holiday and election season the City Council holds only one council meeting during the months of November and December. This year, they are November 15 and December 13, both meetings begin at 5:30pm. 

Lastly, November is a time of special recognition for one of our local heroes. Kory Puderbaugh was a graduate of Eagle High School and a Silver Medal Winner as a member of the Rugby team at the Paralympics this summer in Rio. On November 8, at the Chamber of Commerce Luncheon Kory will be recognized for his accomplishments in life; only one of which is an Olympic Silver Medal. On November 10, a special reception will be held at the Eagle Public Library. The reception recognizing his accomplishments is a time when friends and community members can meet and congratulate Kory. Please join us for this event orchestrated by Council member Naomi Preston.

Dedication of the Purple Heart reserved parking space at City Hall.
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.
Volunteer of the Month - Judy Lamberth
The Eagle Public Library is fortunate to have a team of hard-working volunteers who are wonderful assets to our organization. The library would like to recognize Judy Lamberth as an outstanding member of this team. Ms. Lamberth volunteers in the cataloging department and has been a volunteer with the Eagle Public library for over 5 years. Mrs. Lamberth has a great attitude, and is a steadfast supporter of the library and its staff. She is an extremely dependable volunteer, and is always willing to add extra hours or days to her volunteer schedule when the department workflow is high. Ms. Lamberth stamps and covers the new and donated books; applies RFID chips to the library items; processes movies, music and audiobooks, and willingly takes on any additional tasks as needed. She works extremely hard, and consistently processes a large amount of items. In fact, it’s not an exaggeration to say that Judy often keeps the library’s cataloging department running! The library is very grateful to have Mrs. Lamberth as part of our team, and very appreciative of her time and dedication as a volunteer.
Thankful for Eagle

For many Americans, the holiday of Thanksgiving consists of fall football, four-day weekends, family gatherings, and a fine feast of food. Throughout history, the meaning of Thanksgiving has changed, however it is clear that giving back has become a huge aspect of Thanksgiving as we know it today. One thing I am most thankful for this season is Eagle! Eagle is known for its sense of community and during the holiday season it is even more apparent.
There are many ways YOU can give back to the community!
  • Did you know the City of Eagle gives out FREE leaf bags in exchange for canned food? From October 17 – November 18, bring at least one canned food item to Eagle City Hall (660 E. Civic Lane) to receive your free leaf bags. *This offer is one per household and is only valid while supplies last.
  • Donate food to the Eagle Community Foodbank or become a volunteer. During the month of November, you may drop off canned food at Eagle City Hall, the Eagle Public Library, or contact the Eagle Community Foodbank.
  • Adopt an animal or volunteer at a local humane society.
  • Participate in the annual coat drive at Eagle Country Christmas, December 10 1:00-6:00 PM at Heritage Park. Donate lightly used coats, mittens, beanies, scarves, and other winter apparel.
  • Engage in a random act of kindness. This trend has become very popular in the Treasure Valley, including buying a cup of coffee for the person in line behind you, or baking cookies for your neighbors.
One of the most important things to give during the holiday is giving thanks! Be thankful for your friends, family, coworkers, customers, community members, and others and let them know you are thankful for the simple, every day actions. A simple “Thanks” can go a long way! Don’t forget to “enjoy Eagle every day!”

NOVEMBER featured Artist
THE GALLERY at City Hall - DAN MOTTAZ
My first artistic work was painting landscapes in the late 1970s. Then I purchased my first camera to assist me in painting remote locations where the painting materials could not go. I would photograph the scene, print the image and paint the picture from the photo. It didn't take long before I got hooked into photography. I soon put painting aside.
Most of my photography concentrated on black and white of varied subjects. I built a darkroom and processed my own prints.
As things go when you are younger, I slowly turned my image making attention to the world of motion pictures. With a college degree in film production, the still camera was put away, making way for a 30 year career in film and video.
A few years before retirement, around 2008, I reintroduced myself to the still camera. This time, instead of film, the medium was digital. Other than the fundamentals of composition, I had to learn an entire new system of making images. It didn't take long before I became nearly obsessed with the world of digital photography, learning all I could from books, extended education classes, workshops and just plain doing it.
I moved to Eagle in 2012 and became an active member in the Camera Club of Eagle as well as the Boise Camera Club where I served as President in 2014.
THE GALLERY at ST LUKE'S - Revecca Boxberger
 Art of one form or another has always been part of my life activity, although put aside too often with more practical or demanding activities. I've attended many art classes though the years learning new craft, or increasing my knowledge and skill of a craft I love. Painting has always drawn me back to the canvas. 
Photography, computer graphics, fiber arts, quilting and sewing, knitting and spinning, beading and jewelry, ceramics, silk screen printing, paper craft, and other crafts are accomplishments I count among my repertoire of successes in the Arts. 
Born in Oakland, CA and raised in the Bay Area, I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Special Major, Graphic and Visual Communication at California State University, Sacramento. Jobs through the years included graphic design, computer graphics, web design and management, and other activities not related to the arts (but paid the bills!) 
A love of craft, making things, experiencing colors and smells and the feel of the implements and materials of the medium, and the enjoyment felt whenever I gaze on a finished project or painting brings me happiness and completeness. Although I gladly accept project requests, I create for myself, mostly.
