Blood drive in Philip on September 16

The next blood drive in Philip will be from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 16, at the Bad River Senior Citizens Center.

The Knights of Columbus, under the coordination of Rick Palecek, are sponsoring the event. To schedule a donation appointment, contact Miranda Huber or call United Blood Services in Rapid City at 1-800-834-8525.

Out of every 100 people needing blood, more that 50 percent will use Type-O. "That's the reason we are trying to sign up more O-positive and O-negative donors for our upcoming drive," said Palecek.

Capital For A Day, a Philip success

Traffic, but no sidewalks, on School Hill ... Ralph Kemnitz (left) and Julie Kemnitz chat with Gov. Rounds about concerns in Philip. Rounds fielded many items with many Philip area people during the afternoon and evening of August 28.

"Put me through my paces with a question and answer session," said South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds. And that is what the citizens of the Philip area did.

The Q&A session ended the governor's speech, which ended the community banquet, which ended Philip being the South Dakota Capital For A Day on Thursday, August 28. The day officially began at 2:30, with cabinet members and top state department employees touring the town of Philip.

But, the day's activities had begun before that.
