  • Sam Nettinga, Honorary Director

  • Sam Nettinga has been with Valley Pride since the beginning.  He became active when the charter member group was looking for a way forward in which to make Pocatello a community with pride and to become more attractive or interested new businesses to relocate or at least consider relocating in our community.  Sam has given his time to work on the welcome signs at the entrances to our community, river cleanups, Brooklyn’s Playground, the Harrison Street cleanup, the berms on Hwy 30, and the Alameda hillside project.  He is most famous in our group for championing the “Bring home the Chief” project placing a statue of Chief Pocatello at the visitor center on South 5th Avenue.
