Wagner, Parker form statehood committees
PIERRE — Wagner and Parker have formed statehood celebration committees for South Dakota's 125th birthday year.
The theme for Wagner's Labor Day Parade on Monday will be "Celebrating 125 Years of Statehood." Floats and costumes will feature statehood history. The local historical society will also open the museum for the day.
Parker recently held an ice cream birthday bash celebration with waffle bowls and ice cream from South Dakota State University. More than 2,300 people participated and signed a special "Happy 125th Birthday South Dakota" banner. Organizers hope to make the ice cream bash an annual event.
