[b]Lyman Co. Extension Open House - SDSU's 125th Anniversary [/b]

Posted by Nicole
South Dakota State University will celebrate its 125th Anniversary on Tuesday, February 21, 2006, and we invite you to the Lyman County Extension Office for an Open House from 1:00 - 3:00 PM. We welcome you to stop by for a dish of SDSU ice cream, a cookie or two and a cup of coffee to help us celebrate. The ice cream will be first come-first served, so you might want to come early!

Several items will be on display dealing with the history of agriculture and Extension in Lyman County. As I hope most people know, we have a wide variety of information and handouts, most of which are free. The open house is a great opportunity to stop in and pick up some material you can use.

We have dug through the archives a little, and brought out a large number of old photos, Extension Homemakers Club histories and publications that will be on display. We welcome you to stop by and help us identify the people in the photos or maybe even see yourself. If you have old photos or other items of historical significance related to SDSU, Extension, 4-H, etc., that you would be willing to loan to us for display, please contact the Extension office or bring them in. We promise to take special care of them and return them to you in good condition.

Put February 21 on your calendar and plan to stop by the Lyman County Extension Office to help us celebrate.

The Centennial Committee met Sunday to discuss further plans for the celebration to be held July 3rd and 4th. The event commences with an all-school banquet on the 3rd followed by a dance.
On the 4th, activities kick-off at noon with a parade which promises to be a special one.

Planning the traditional old time celebration, the committee assures us that many fun events will happen to keep everyone of all ages enjoying themselves all afternoon.

There is an alumni basketball tournament to be held with surrounding towns invited to participate. It will be held in the community hall which will be cooled! Bingo will be played in the cool fire hall, and plans for a youth basketball game and races in Main Street are being made.
There will be a barbeque beginning at 6 pm (no buttons to buy). At 8pm there is a program scheduled at the park, followed by fire works, weather permitting.

A centennial quilt designed and sewed by Julie Larson and crew will be awarded to the lucky raffle winner. On the 4th everything is free except for some food and drink booths.

The Vivian Centennial Committee will have a booth at the Presho Farm & Home Show Feb. 25th where they will sell Centennial shirts, buttons, raffle tickets, and other items. Lonis Wendt will have a History of Vivian book which he has complied.

The next meeting will be March 13th at the hall, anyone is welcome to attend and share their ideas.
