Gov. Dennis Daugaard hassigned a proclamation declaringMay as National Military Appre-ciation Month.May is a time to recognize thesacrifices and successes of thosewho have served in the ArmedForces, both past and present.“The vigilance of the membersof the Armed Forces has been in-strumental to the preservation of freedom, security and prosperityenjoyed by the people of this greatnation,” the Governor’s proclama-tion states. “The success of the Armed Forces depends on thededicated service of its membersand their families.”National Military AppreciationMonth includes: Loyalty Day(5/1), Victory in Europe Day (5/8),Military Spouse AppreciationDay (5/11), Armed Forces Day(5/18), and Memorial Day (5/27).Each of those days provides anopportunity to learn more aboutmilitary members and the fami-lies that support them.Dear Editor: After an unsuccessful trip toSturgis yesterday with the man-agement of Lemmon Arrow Tran-sit to present a case forcontinuation for bus service fromFAITH to RAPID CITY, I was in-formed there may be other waysto support said service withoutgovernment funding.I have been riding Arrow Tran-sit for about four years now,(they’ve serviced FAITH for muchlonger), and I never heard of aradio fund raiser as they have lo-cally in LEMMON.It is not an excessive amountthat the company requests, andservice can still be obtained atMeadow Junction to the north forFAITH. Still it might be interest-ing to see how much money couldbe raised by FAITH, who thecounty commissioner stated couldbe supportive in regards to fund-ing, just by forwarding donationsto the company office in LEM-MON.I don’t think the people heretruly realize the opportunity theyhave to utilize Arrow’s vehicles ontheir twice-monthly basis.Thank you,Wayne Wilson

Debbie explained the rug situ-ation at the bar. The rugs theyhave behind the bar now have theholes in them, making it harderto clean them. Cindy likes to beable to wash them down. Theycan purchase others for about$1,000, which is less than theycurrently rent them for, and theywould be easier to clean. Councilapproved replacing the currentones.Debbie explained that DickButler sold his hangar at the air-port to Denny Topf and the leasewith the City needs to be trans-ferred to his name. Members ap-proved this transfer.Debbie informed Council thatthe Girls Scouts had planted treesat the small park by the mu-seum/information center andwere wondering if a fence could beput up to protect the trees. Debbiesaid she thought the trees weretall enough now that they should-n’t get damaged. It would beharder to mow the area if a fencewas put up. Council decided notto put up the fence. The school do-nated their old playgroundequiptment for the park, and theGirls Scouts will also be puttingin a gazebo this summer. Thecowboy statue on the corner of Main and 212 will also be movedto this area.Council retired into executivesession for legal matters at 8:15.Their next meeting is May14th.
