8 Broadcaster Press August 28, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Veterans Day At The Symposium, New State Historical Society Book Celebrate State’s Political Culture South Dakota State Fair PIERRE, S.D. – At the request of the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs, Gov. Dennis Daugaard has proclaimed Thursday, Aug. 30, 2018, as Veterans Day at the South Dakota State Fair, calling on all South Dakotans to honor those men and women who fought bravely for our freedoms. At 10:30 a.m. on August 30, the South Dakota State Fair will host a “Salute to Veterans” program. The program will be held on the Northwest Energy Freedom Stage (Recreation Avenue). Susan Iron, Veterans Service Officer for Lincoln and Union Counties, will be the keynote speaker. Special music will be provided by Raptor, commercial musical ensemble of the United States Air Force Heartland of America Band. “Whether in peace or at war, the important role of our veterans cannot be denied. They are men and women from all walks of life that have one thing in common --- a love for this great country,” said Secretary Zimmerman. “No matter where or when veterans have served, they’ve always served with distinction and their service to this country is a bridge that was built on courage, dedication and patriotism.” Representatives from the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Service Organizations, , as well as county veterans service officers will have informational booths in the Veterans Building on Flag Avenue throughout the week. Veterans are encouraged to stop by the booth and learn more about benefits and programs available to them as well. To show appreciation for their service, the Fair will give all veterans and active military personnel free gate admission on Aug 30. PIERRE, S.D.— Although South Dakota is known for its agrarian conservatism, there is more to the state’s political tradition than simply Republicans or Democrats. The authors of a new book from the South Dakota State Historical Society explore the state’s identity in “The Plains Political Tradition: Essays on South Dakota Political Culture, Volume 3” edited by Jon K. Lauck, John E. Miller and Paula M. Nelson. The volume will be released Sept. 8, during a free symposium at Augustana University’s Center for Western Studies in Sioux Falls. Throughout the event, to be held from 7:30 a.m.12:30 p.m. CDT, authors and other panelists will explore South Dakota’s political history and the development of its modern political culture. In this final volume of “The Plains Political Tradition” series, the editors gather essays from 15 historians and other scholars who identify major influences on the political culture of South Dakota. Against a backdrop of agricultural ups and downs, varied religious beliefs, worldwide conflict and powerful personalities, the authors examine ingredients critical to the success and failure of civic movements, legislation, and political campaigns and careers. “The Plains Political Tradition” can be pre-ordered for $24.95, plus shipping and tax, directly from the South Dakota Historical Society Press at sdhspress.com or by calling 605773-6009. More information on the Plains Politics Symposium and Book Launch can be found at augie.edu/center-for-western-studies.
