Vendors offering something for everyone will be exhibiting their services and wares at the Presho Gym Saturday, Feb. 25 at the annual Presho Farm and Home Show.

The show starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m. Along with indoor and outdoor exhibitors, a Pen of Three Breeding show will take place outside in the west gym parking lot.

Show organizers, the Presho Area Chamber, furnish free entertainment at the annual Farm and Home Show. New to this years show is Lyman County native Jim Woster who will take the stage at 11 a.m. and again at 2 p.m. Woster grew up north of Reliance and graduated from Chamberlain High School. He went on to graduate from South Dakota State University at Brookings. After years of working in the cattle industry as a buyer and a market reporter for local television and radio stations, Woster now does public relations work for Avera McKennan Hospital and South Dakota State University. Woster writes a weekly column for the Tri-State Neighbor. In addition, Woster collaborated with his two brothers Terry and Kevin, who are also writers, and published a collection of their favorite columns. Woster is a highly sought after public speaker at events throughout South Dakota and surrounding states.

When asked what kind of performance he has planned for the Presho Farm and Home Show Woster replied, Ill tell a few jokes, leave a message with attendees, and have a little fun. Woster has been known to play guitar and sing. If the crowd asks, Woster said he may be persuaded to sing one of the two songs he knows.

At 12:30 p.m. Lonis Wendt of Vivian will present his production of The Story of Lewis & Clark. Wendt and his wife Lois spent the past few years traveling the Lewis & Clark trail during the 200th anniversary of the expedition. Wendt has produced a video of his own photos.
At 10 a.m. District 26 Legislatures will hold a cracker barrel on the stage.

Mark your calendar and make plans to attend the Presho Area Chamber Farm and Home Show Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Presho Gym. There will be something for everyone at this years show.
