The annual gathering of SDARL graduates at the South Dakota State Fair was held on Saturday, September 4. It was a warm day in Huron and many program alumni dropped by to share some fellowship and cold refreshments.

Among those in attendance were, from left, Warren Symens (SDARL VIII), Rebecca Rink (SDARL VI), Randy Nelson (SDARL VIII), Tessa and Shane Reis (SDARL VIII), Dawn Nagel (SDARL VII), CEO Don Norton, Connie Bieber (SDARL IX) and Program Director Jennifer Henrie (SDARL IX).

It was a great time for alumni from different classes to mix and mingle. Pictured above, from left, Garrett Masat (SDARL X), Dawn Nagel (SDARL VII), Jennifer Henrie (SDARL IX), Peggy Bieber (SDARL IX), Craig Bieber (SDARL IV), and Warren Symens (SDARL VIII).
