Lyman High School Alumni Reunion set for July 28

 Lyman School Alumni Reunion set for July 28
 
The Lyman Alumni Association officers announce that the 2018 High School Reunion will be held Sat., July 28 at the Fire Hall in Presho from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The Presho Firemen have offered the association the use of their truck bay area, and will set up tables and chairs and offer a cash bar for the convenience of alumni.
Previously, the reunion was held at the Medicine Creek Golf Course Clubhouse.
“We tried using different locations for the reunion and have struggled to find just the right spot to accommodate alumni,” said Association President Dean Reumann. “We decided to try the Fire Hall this year, since many alumni attend the Firemen’s Dance that is held that night.
Rather than ask alumni to bring food to the reunion, this year the association will furnish all of the  meal – a pork loin sandwich, salads, beans and chips and ask those attending to give a free-will offering to help pay for the expenses. 
The reunion will start with a social at 6:00 p.m. followed by the meal, a short program and  entertainment. Group photos of the honored classes - those ending in “3” and “8” will be taken.   The class of 1973, the second class to graduate from LHS, will observe their 45th reunion.
In conjunction with the reunion, a 9-Hole Best Ball Golf Tournament will be held Saturday morning to benefit the Lyman Alumni Scholarship fund. At least one of the members of the 4-person team must be an alumni.  Cost is $25 per person.  This will mark the seventh year that a $500 scholarship is awarded to a second-year post-graduate student who graduated from Lyman High School.  Last year, due to the generosity of alumni, two $500 scholarships were awarded to two alumni.
Applications for the 2018 scholarship is due May 1, 2018.  Please send a copy of your GPA from the last semester and a copy of your preregistration for the Fall of 2018 which indicates you will be a full- time student  to: Lyman Alumni, PO BOX 518, Presho, SD  57568 by May 1, 2018.

Sundogs make an appearance on a chilly spring morning

Sundogs make an appearance on a chilly spring morning 
 
Wednesday, April 4 the temps dropped into the single digits creating Sundogs around the sun. A sundog is a concentrated patch of sunlight occasionally seen to the left or right of the sun. Sundogs often form in pairs on either side of the sun when sunlight refracts through icy clouds. A Sun halo is a circle of light that creates a circle 22 degrees wide around the sun. Sundogs and the halo disappear as the sun rises.
