DeSmet planning to build a new Community Event Center

Posted: Updated:


 Some big things are happening in the small town of DeSmet.

 The town is fundraising for a $3.7 million community wellness and events center.
 
 If the town can raise $200,000 an anonymous donor will match it.

 The center will feature a full size track and other fitness options.

 It will also have an indoor theater and amphitheater for the community to enjoy. Rita Anderson is DeSmet's Director of Economic Development. "We've been fortunate recently with several young couples moving back here from larger communities, where they decided they wanted to move back here and raise their families. So we thought this building is so important, and these facilities, to have the things here for them as they would if they were in larger communities."

 They've raised $125,000 so far... and they need $161,000 more to reach their goal.
