[b]Presho Centennial Celebration concludes Monday[/b]

Preshos 100th celebration wrapped up Monday, July 4th with a potluck dinner under the tent at the city park. Due to the short workweek, caused by the 4th of July holiday, the Herald will feature all the photos and stories from the celebration in next weeks issue (July 13th).

Clean up started at the park Monday afternoon as guests departed the picnic. Unfortunately, the Centennial committee received word that eight flags and three aluminum poles from the State flag display along Main Street were reported missing.

A Main Street resident noticed the missing flags and reported it to the Lyman County Sheriffs office Monday morning. When volunteers started gathering up the flags, poles, and steel posts it became apparent that some of the flags were deliberately cut from their poles while others were taken along with the pole.

According to centennial committee co-chairman Mike Sprenger this incident was very disheartening. We rented the flags from a company from Sioux Falls, now in addition to the rental fee we will have to pay for the replacement of these missing flags, which could be another $ 400, stated Sprenger. After such a wonderful weekend, to have this happen (theft), its really a let down to all the committee members.

Tuesday morning Sheriff Don Manger received a report from Presho resident Paul Olson that the large flag from the Lyman County Pioneer and Veterans Memorial was also missing. Presho Legion members went to the museum Monday morning to hang flags and discovered the large flag was gone.

According to Manger theft of an item valued at more than $ 500 is considered grand theft. We working to determine just what was taken, when, and the value of the items, stated Manger.
The case remains under investigation. Please contact the sheriffs office at 869-2267 if you have any information in regards to the stolen flags.
