November 2022

Black Friday shoppers were out and about on Friday, Nov. 25. Shoppers were lined up outside the door of Dumont Boutique and CreativeWEB waiting for the doors to open at 8 a.m. and hoping to take advantage of great sales. 

While many people started their holiday shopping on Friday, 6B Seed and Supplies helped people either continue a family tradition, or possibly start a new one, with their sale of fresh Christmas trees, greenery and other goodies, which started on Wednesday, Nov. 23 and continued on Friday and Saturday. It was an event for the whole family with an exotic animal petting zoo, a hot cocoa and smores station, Christmas cookies, lots of trees and décor for sale and the farm decorated with lights galore. Their Santa and Sweet Shop is still open with many great Christmas items available for decorating or gift giving. They have another wonderful event planned for Saturday, Dec. 17 with a kids’ book reading by local author, Amanda Radke at their Santa and Sweet Shop at 10:30 a.m. along with the shop open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for any last minute shoppers.

Many people took advantage of the nice weather the area experienced over the Thanksgiving weekend to get their outdoor decorations up, too, so the whole county is looking festive and ready for the Christmas season.

Fundraising for the Sanborn County “Raise the Roof” 4-H Building Addition has had great success towards their goal of $350,000, with the total raised at over $317,000! The latest effort is the “Shoot the 4 of Clubs” fundraising activity.  Each week tickets are sold for a Monday night drawing. The drawing is shared via Facebook live and you do not have to be present to win as the 4-H building committee will call the winner. The lucky winner of the drawing then picks a sealed and numbered envelope from a group of 54, each containing a card from a deck of cards.  The goal of the drawing winner is to pick the envelope containing the 4 of Clubs which means they win 50 percent of the Shoot the 4 of Clubs “cumulative pot.” If they do not pick the envelope with the four of clubs, the lucky winner still receives 10 percent of the weekly ticket sales which has been $500+ that equals $50+ in winnings.  The remainder of the ticket sales goes towards the cumulative pot.  The tickets from the weekly sales are then discarded and sales for the next week begins.  The minimum payout to the four of clubs winner is $500.
