Spearfish next up for SD Gov. Daugaard’s Capital for a Day

SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) — Spearfish is the next South Dakota city set to step in for Pierre in the governor's Capital for a Day program.

Activities in the western South Dakota community on Sept. 9 will include a main street walk, business tours and a community social event. Gov. Dennis Daugaard will also host a lunch to discuss local issues with community leaders.

Daugaard says the events are an opportunity for him to become "better acquainted with the people of Spearfish."

Spearfish Mayor Dana Boke says the city is looking forward to showcasing its strengths, as well as "the successes of its people" and the opportunities in front of them.
