2008 Sioux Empire Woodcarving Exposition

Anyone who has entered his work in this wood carving competition should by now have received the Sioux Empire Fair Premium Book. Rules and Entry Form for the Woodcarving Exposition appear on pages 90 & 91. The entry form should be available at the Sioux Empire Fair website:

Dates for the fair are August 5-10. Mailed in Entry Forms and entries must be received by Friday, August 1. Hand delivered entries will be received at the Arts Building on Satuday, August 2, 9 AM until 4 PM. Judging will take place Sunday, August 3.

Congratulations Stan and Ihlene Fillingsness!

Stan will be ninty years old on July 10. Ihlene is already a couple of weeks into her 91st year. June 14th was the 68th anniversary of their wedding. As recognized by the South Dakota Arts Council, Stan is a Master carver in the Scandinavian tradition, and anyone who has tasted treats from Ihlene's kitchen will give her credit for being a "Master" baker!
