Remembrance & Renewal Convocation In Rapid City
RAPID CITY, SD -

The people of Rapid City remember the tragic events of the flood in 1972 during a ceremony Saturday evening.

It was 40 years ago that heavy rain created a flash flood that washed through the city, wiping out homes and businesses.  The area along Rapid Creek was devastated in the flood and 238 people lost their lives.

Saturday evening, a Remembrance and Renewal Convocation will be held at Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.  It will feature speeches and shared memories from former Rapid City Mayor Don Barnett, first responders and others.
