Central South Dakota town of Kimball selected to be state's honorary capital for a day


KIMBALL, South Dakota — The central South Dakota city of Kimball has been selected as South Dakota's honorary Capital for a Day next month.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says activities for the July 15 celebration will include a Main Street walk, business tours around town and a social hour. The governor will also hold a roundtable lunch for community leaders to meet and discuss the needs of the city.

The governor will join officials from Kimball for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the town's new Health and Dental Clinic. The town used a Community Block Grant to help build the clinic.

Kimball Mayor Wayne Tupper says residents are looking forward to talking with the governor about issues affecting small towns in rural America.
