Over the weekend of Dec. 18 and 19, three local young men competed in the Matt Triplett Invitational Bull Riding event held in Sioux Falls. On Saturday night, Tanner Christian, a seventh grader from Woonsocket, won the mini bull exhibition, and Layton Zoss, a sixth grader from Forestburg, got second. Mason Moody, a junior from Letcher, got second in the invitational, finishing just 1.5 points behind Professional Bull Riding great, Jess Lockwood. 

It was a successful weekend for Sanborn County in the bull riding arena, and we look forward to seeing more of this success in the future.

At the November meeting of the American Legion Auxiliary Post 29 in Woonsocket, members present decided to organize a project to include some of their junior members. It was decided to work with the sixth-grade class in Woonsocket in decorating pillowcases for deployed soldiers. The Auxiliary has two junior members in the sixth grade; they are Megan Kogel and Danielle Brooks. 

On Thursday, Dec. 17, Legion Auxiliary members, Bobbi White, Carrie Howard and Erica Howard went into the sixth-grade classroom with blank, white pillowcases to be decorated. They were joined by junior Legion Auxiliary members Dilyn Brooks and Trista White who helped with instruction and dispersing of supplies needed to the sixth-grade students.

On Saturday, Dec. 19, members of the Town ‘N Country 4-H Blue Group held a Christmas event at Letcher Community Center. A senior 4-H member from Miner County, Kayla Kommes, brought over her team of horses and wagon to provide rides to anyone interested, and they rode all over Letcher for over two hours. 

The 4-H club also provided hot cocoa, cider and candy canes at the Community Center, and Santa rode in the wagon to the Community Center at around 4:45 p.m. to visit with all the kids and to collect the letters that kids had left to be delivered to him.

In addition, the club collected donations for the Sanborn County Food Pantry, which were delivered on Monday to the courthouse. 

Social distancing was observed, and everyone wore masks during the event. The club reported that they had a great turnout, and everyone who attended had a good time. The weather really cooperated to make for a fun afternoon and evening for everyone.
