The drawings will be held Sunday, Sept. 6 at the South Dakota State Fair in Huron during the 4-H Leaders’ Association’s Barbecue. Winner need not be present to win, and becomes the permanent owner of the prize. Must be 18.
Over the past several months, the South Dakota State Fair Foundation has been carrying out a capital campaign for the exhibit hall, which will be a statewide home for South Dakota 4-H, something not currently available for 4-H members. The building will be constructed on the site that once featured Clover Hall.
The exhibit hall’s construction will begin soon. When built, the 48,000 square-foot Nordby Exhibit Hall for 4-H, Youth, and Community will feature more than 30,000 square feet of exhibit space, multiple classrooms and a large kitchen for 4-H Special Foods competitions. A performance stage will be constructed for the many 4-H activities, community and regional events that will take place in this building year-round.
John Iverson, owner of Iverson Chrysler, states, “Everyone’s objective is to make the Nordby Exhibit Hall a resounding success, and this raffle allows EVERYONE to join in and contribute to the education of our future leaders, while experiencing the anticipation of winning a Ram Truck, Featherlite trailer and other prizes generously contributed by Huron Continental Marketing, Logan Theatres and the good folks at Runnings.”
Iverson Chrysler is a locally-owned, community-minded business that has been in the Mitchell area for more than 60 years. A new location recently opened in Huron. The business provides Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Jeep vehicles, as well as trailers and used vehicles.
To date, the South Dakota State Fair Foundation has raised $3.9 million of its $4.7 million goal. Those interested in supporting the Capital Campaign are invited to contact the State Fair Foundation at 605-553-4251 or visit www.sdstatefairfoundation.com.
