Share/Save/Bookmark

PIERRE, South Dakota — More activities are planned across South Dakota to mark its 125th year of statehood.

In Minnehaha County, the Historical Society's Statehood Celebration Committee will give magnets to all fourth-graders in September. South Dakota history is typically taught during fourth grade.

Tripp residents will be celebrating the state's birthday with dinner at the fairgrounds and a Fireman's Dance on Main Street on Sept. 6. A breakfast and Cowboy Church is planned for Sept. 7.

Members of the committee overseeing Sisseton's contribution to the statehood celebrations plan to continue interviewing and recording elderly residents to preserve family stories and local historical events.

Those interested in recording a story can do so in various locations including the Heritage Museum of Roberts County and with the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate tribal archivist Tamara St. John.
