Happy Birthday Rick!!  We’re still going to party without you.  Dan Peters and Todd Epp will give the former Mayor a proper sounding board for this momentous occasion.

Also the weather is less than desirable in Sioux Falls which begs the question, “Why do we live in South Dakota?”  Also in the Friday Afternoon Club we can highlight the Sound of Music live performance on NBC.  It did not draw Super Bowl type ratings, but on a Thursday night in December got a pretty good rating.  We will also do shameless promotion of events such as the Live Nativity and Streets of Bethlehem event at First United Methodist Church.
