South Dakota's celebration of its 125th anniversary of statehood will include a wagon train that will travel from Yankton to Pierre in September.
Members of a commission appointed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard say the celebration also will end with some kind of event in Pierre on Nov. 2, the 125th anniversary of the date South Dakota and North Dakota became states.
The commission finished work Friday on a report that ranks proposed events and other activities. It recommends that the governor focus on the highest-ranked items and do as many as possible after considering the availability of money and volunteers.
Those priorities include inviting American Indian tribes to take part in activities. Many of the events will be organized by local communities.
