PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakotans are being asked for ideas on how the state should celebrate 125 years of statehood next year.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard invited people to give public testimony at 1 p.m. Wednesday in Pierre at the Capitol visitor center where the commission organizing the celebrations is meeting.

People can also make suggestions to the 125th Anniversary Commission at www.125.sd.gov, email 125info@state.sd.us or call 605-773-5689.

Commission members on Wednesday will also discuss ideas that have already been proposed, possible joint efforts with North Dakota and potential statewide events.
