Published: Thursday, October 4th, 2012
On Oct. 10-13, the Golden Diamond Anniversary Show will recognize the 75th year for the Livestock Show (WJLS) and the 50th year for the Family and Consumer Science Show (FCSS) at the Central States Fairgrounds in Rapid City.
Many special events are planned to bring exhibitors, parents, show alumni, sponsors and the public together to renew friendships and make new friends.
Events for Oct. 10 include registration of livestock for the 200 exhibitors and non-livestock exhibits as well as WJLS scholarship interviews.
On Thursday evening, Oct. 11, the fifth annual WJLS supper and program will kick off the alumni and public events. The Western Junior Livestock Show will recognize this year’s honoree which is the Snyder Family of Piedmont as they are descendants of one of the original show “founders,” Enos Blair. The family has participated for five generations in the WJLS. The Cattleman’s Family Legacy scholarship winners will also be announced.
This event will be held in the Fine Arts building. The committee would like to have reservations made by noon that day to Jackie Maude at 255-4445. The shows are looking for third, fourth and fifth generation families.
On Friday, a burger bust will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Fine Arts building.
