Today at noon begins University of Idaho’s Vandal Giving Day! Every donation is just as exciting as these Idaho Potatoes being delivered to President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara! #VandalsGive Above, Idaho Governor Cecil D. Andrus personally inspects the Idaho spuds to be shipped direct to the White House. Mrs. Bush requested the delivery of Idaho potatoes after a conversation with Governor Andrus at a dinner party.
