School Board:schedulings, playground and scholarships

At the beginning of the meeting, Marcia West spoke on behalf of the Philip High School Alumni Board and thanked the school board for the use of the high school facilities during the All-School Reunion.

"It was just more than we ever expected," she said. "We served 1,453 people, and they all had a chair to sit on."

"It was well organized and a great time," said Superintendent and Elementary Principal Keven Morehart. "We appreciate you letting us be involved."

The board reviewed their five-year capital outlay plan.

Muzzleloaders and tomahawks ... These mountain men reenactment enthusiasts entertained Bad River Park visitors during the Philip centennial. Their official club title is the Muzzleloaders of the Black Hills.

The all-school reunion registration started at noon on Thursday. The many, many (and still many more) activities started out easy with an old-timers' baseball game. Then, the tempo jumped and leaped forward and locked onto maximum with a Matched Bronc Ride whose quality, some said, could rival that of the National Finals Rodeo.

Over 1,200 people witnessed the pony express delivery of Governor Rounds' official proclamation of Philip's Centennial. Then, midst a buffalo-meat supper and gabbing with old friends, the audience saw 25 cowboys eliminated down to six.
