The South Dakota Community Foundation announces the establishment of the Greater Lyman Community Foundation, a permanently endowed fund with the South Dakota Community Foundation. The funds earnings will be distributed to non profit programs and charities within the Lyman County community.

The funds establishment is the result of a challenge issued by the South Dakota Community Foundation. The $ 25,000 challenge grant is contingent upon raising $ 100,000 in private, unrestricted funds within the next three years. According to Bob Sutton, SDCF Executive Director, This money will function as a savings account for this community forever. Earnings from the established $ 100,000 fund will be distributed to non profit and charity programs and organizations in the greater Lyman area.

Accepting the challenge from the SDCF, members of the 2005 Lyman LeadershipPlenty Class has selected a board of directors to oversee the fund raising and distribution of earnings. The directors include: board president, Herb Sundall, Kennebec; first vice-president April Reis, Oacoma; second vice-president, Angela Ehlers, Presho; Treasurer, Ron McManus, Secretary, Reliance; Tonya Ness, Kennebec; Jim Fulwider, Iona; Neal Brakke, Presho; Judge (Justin) Jessop, Presho.

The 2005 LeadershipPlenty Class accepted the challenge from the South Dakota Community Foundation as a means to fulfill the class objective; to enrich and promote the future of the Lyman area, said board president Herb Sundall.

The South Dakota community Foundation is a public nonprofit corporation operated by a board of directors with permanent assists of nearly $40 million. The SDCF contains funds for over 200 permanently endowed funds, including community savings accounts, scholarship funds, donor advised funds and designated funds all for the benefit of nonprofit and charitable causes across South Dakota.

Mark and Kellie Halvorson of Kennebec, who have operated Pony Express and Hot Rods Steakhouse for the past 2 years, recently purchased the business from Halvorson Oil, Inc. of Kennebec.
The Pony Express name has been dropped and both the caf and the steakhouse are now officially known as Hot Rods Caf & Steakhouse. The caf, starting Wednesday, Feb. 1st will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Sunday through Friday. The caf will be closed on Saturday for the remainder of the winter. The Steakhouse opens daily at 5:00 p.m. and operates the grill until 9:00 p.m. The new winter hours will remain in effect until June 1 when summer hours will take effect.

A grand re-opening of Hot Rods will be held Saturday, Feb. 11th. The Halvorsons invite the public to stop in for free hors doeuvres and drink specials from 5 to 7 p.m. The newly constructed banquet/party room will host its first live band, Sweet Addiction from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Bus transportation between Kennebec and Presho will be provided. We want everyone to come in, see our new party room, enjoy the live music and get home safely, added Mark.

Mark and Kellie have added a 700 square foot banquet/party room to the Steakhouse. The banquet room, which can be closed off from the Steakhouse, will seat up to 55 people for private parties or meetings, said Mark. In addition, the Steakhouse main dinning area can seat 35 more for a total of up to 90. Marks father Curt Halvorson and his uncle Jerry Busch built the addition with assistance from local contractors Moore Bros. Construction, Steve Hills, and PowerCom.

According to Mark, the name change is the only major difference customers will notice. We will continue with the same menu in the caf. The steakhouse, now with a new char-broiled grill, will continue to offer nightly steak specials, homemade chicken fried steaks and grandma Margies homemade pie.
