Celebrating 125 years in Siouxland, Ocheyedan

28 Aug

Communities celebrating 125 years of existence in the Siouxland area this summer have been numerous. Five that I can think of, and they are all fun to attend. These have included Hospers, Sioux Center and Charter Oak. Such celebrations are similar but all are different and unique to their respective community.

The pride residents and former residents returning for a visit, as well as family members coming to visit make the celebrations fun. And it is a testament to those small communities having survived for 125 years. Some prosper more than others, but each holding their own.
