Students of the Spafford elementary school in Flandreau decided that they wanted to contribute
to the World War II memorial being built in Pierre. The students were encouraged to find odd
jobs or errands to do to earn some money and then contribute it to the memorial. Last Tuesday,
representative students presented over $490 to a group of World War II veterans who came to the
school. In the front row, left to right, are students Shawn Lang, Lee Grootwassink and Ashleigh Hare.
Pictured in the second row are Della Bechan, Irv Boomgaarden, Bud Carr, Lee Rose and Al Powers.
The back row includes Kenneth Rahn, Don K. Johnson, Elmer Hinricher, Lyle Croon and Kenny Doyle.
