PIERRE (AP) - Move over Pierre, it's Lake Norden's time in the sun.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced Friday that Lake Norden is set to step in for Pierre as part of the governor's Capital for a Day program.

Daugaard says he's looking forward to the July 28 event. He says it's an excellent opportunity to get better acquainted with the residents and issues affecting the Lake Norden area.

Activities planned include a walk on main street, business tours and a social event for the community. Leaders will discuss the needs of the city with Daugaard at a roundtable lunch.

Lake Norden Mayor Jason Aho says it's good to bring the governor into the community to offer residents and businesses an opportunity to discuss important issues.
