Celebrating 125 Years of Statehood

Posted: Updated:
    Eight more statehood celebration committees are promoting South Dakota’s history with events and activities. Activities include fire department water fights, Finn bread baking, antique tractor pulls, a Wife Carrying Contest and a DVD on the baking of Kolaches.  New local committees have organized in Harrisburg, Ipswich, Tabor, Frederick, Lake Norden, Stickney, Geddes and Lawrence County.
    All locally formed committees will receive help from the Governor’s Office to publicize their events and projects, an official certificate and the opportunity to have special highway signs for their communities.
    A total of 17 cities, towns and area groups have become official statehood celebration communities so far by creating a special event for this year or adding a state history theme to existing annual events.
    Information about creating a local committee and all the event dates can be found at http://125.sd.gov under the “Celebration Communities” tab.
