The Vivian Centennial Committee met last week to select the date of the 2006 Vivian Centennial celebration. Chairwoman Jodi Smith announces that the community of Vivian will host a Centennial celebration July 3rd and 4th, 2006.

The theme, Vivian, a Bridge to the Good Life, was chosen. Committee member Lez Moore will present logo designs at the next committee meeting in October.

The Centennial celebration will include a parade, games and activities for all ages, a barbecue, and a program on the 4th of July. A fireworks display is also being considered. The Vivian High School alumni will host a reunion on July 3rd.

Tom Authier, program chairman, is gathering interesting or humorous stories of life in Vivian over the past 100 years. Authier plans to develop skits based on Vivian stories. If you have a Vivian story to share contact Authier at 605-683-6571 or write him at PO Box 24, Vivian, SD 57576.

Numerous fund raising projects are being organized including the raffle of a commemorative Vivian Centennial over & under gun. Vivians 100 year history is being compiled into a book. We plan to have wearables, imprinted with the Vivian theme and logo, available for sale by fall, just in time for holiday shopping, said Smith.
Joining Smith, Moore, and Auither on the committee are Ryan Huffman, Bob Patrick, Lonis Wendt, Misty Chester, and Marsha Hullinger.

[b]Cannons on to State Tourney[/b]

Posted by Nicole
KC will play Thursday August 11th at 7:30 PM (final game of the day) in Mitchell at the State Tourney against Humboldt-Hartford, a very good team from the Cornbelt League, which is the states strongest league. KC did play Humboldt-Hartford during the regular season in 2004, and defeated them 9-2 in a good ball game. According to Coach Herb Sundall, that was a game in which KC played one of their best games of the year defensively, turning three or four double plays. Humboldt was missing a good player or two that night so it will take another fine effort on our part to beat them again; however we certainly know we can compete with them, said Sundall. Should the Cannons win on Thursday, they will play again in the State Tourney at 6:00 PM, Monday. The tourney is single elimination and has a total of 32 teams in the Class B division.

The Cannons record for 2005 is 24-1, 10-0 in league standings, and 22-1 in regular season.

Following the district tournament the teams making the State Tourney are allowed to pick up three players from the district. The Cannons three pick ups are: Nathan Zacher from Wessington-Miller, Chris Konechne from White Lake-Kimball, and Chris Hill from Plankinton.
