One of our local small towns (Bryant, SD) held a 125th celebration. The weekend was filled with many activities, visiting with "old" friends and lots of fun.
The great-grandchildren of Clifford and Betty Noem (hubby's grandparents) that were around for the celebration rode on a float in the parade. Our daughter Courtney is in the front of the float in a green "gnome" hat and son Jeremy is driving the ATV pulling the float.
Hubby's dad Al and siblings Sally, Win, Larry, Rollie, Harley and Avis were all raised near Bryant, the town holding the celebration. Here are all the siblings on a float in the very large parade that was held.
Here I am with classmates and very good friends, Jodi on the left and Michelle (also a cousin of mine) on the right. We were best friends in High School and hung out in Bryant lots in those days. Michelle has since moved to Minnesota and Jodi to Watertown but I still do lots of business, go to church and spend lots of time in the town.
Me with cousins Michelle (left) and Staci (right). The were raised just outside of town and their dad was also raised in the area. We spent lots of time with them when we were growing up. It was great to have them back to help celebrate this wonderful small town.
Lots of fun was had by everyone.
I love this little town and LOVE living in this area!
