WESSINGTON SPRINGS-The 26th annual Wessington Springs Farm and Home Show will be held from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 15 in the Elementary School Gym, Wessington Springs.

More than 50 exhibitors are expected to showcase their newest products. The free-admission event is sponsored by the Wessington Springs Area Chamber and Development.

Concessions will be available from the Springs Inn Cafe. The Post Prom Committee will be serving coffee and rolls in the morning. The Jerauld/Buffalo 4-H Club will be holding a silent auction with funds going to the Jacob Kolousek Memorial 4-H Scholarship Fund.

Seminars are as follows: 11 a.m. Flower Arranging by Baker's Design; 1 p.m. Main Street Improvement Project by the city of Wessington Springs; and 2 p.m. Benefits of Yoga by Sherrie Redmann, class instructor.

After the Wessington Springs Area Chamber of Commerce dissolved in 2015 as a separate non-profit organization, it was questionable whether the annual Farm & Home Show, which its volunteers put on for the past 25 years, would continue or not. The Development Corporation officially became the Wessington Springs Area Chamber and Development, since it had been serving as the office contact for the chamber, but with limited staff, financial resources and volunteers, it also questioned taking on the role.

However, the decision was made to continue this year. Exhibitor and sponsorship registration is due by Feb. 1 so company information can be included in the publicity; however, registration will continue to be accepted after that date. Contact the Chamber and Development Office at (605) 539-1929 or go to www.wessingtonsprings.com and go to the event calendar for more information.
