Feel Good Friday

EastIdahoNews.com and Ashley Furniture HomeStore are teaming up every week to bring you some good news during Feel Good Friday!

We want to surprise people in our community with random acts of kindness and leave you with some feel good moments.

The Fremont County Search and Rescue team is made up entirely of volunteers. The squad has been very busy this winter and put in over 1,000 hours during January responding to avalanches and other calls. In fact, if the county had to pay $35 an hour for the crew, it would have cost more than $30,000 to keep the search and rescue crew going.

We decided to thank the crew with a surprise dinner during their monthly meeting. Watch the video above to see what happened!
